Gardai investigate ATM scam reports

Gardai in Tralee, Castleisland and Abbeyfeale are investigating a number of reports of ATM scams. The scam involves a device that reads off the magnetic black stripe on your bank card when you insert it into the ATM machine. This stripe holds all of your account information. Copies of the card are made which can be used to withdraw money from the person’s account. Una Dillon is with the Irish Payments Services Organisation. She says people can avoid getting caught.
