Beware PIN Pad Swapping

According to an article on The Star Pheonix website, police have released surveillance images of a number of suspects behind a recent series of fraudelent pin pad switches in Saskatoon.

Six businesses in Saskatoon have recently had their pin pads switched with units containing a skimming device allowing the scammers to gather account numbers and passwords of anyone who uses the non-chip type keypad.

The men are likely from out-of-province, travelling to  different cities to conduct skimming activities.  Police believe at least four men are involved in the operation.

Anyone who has had their debit or credit cards compromised are encouraged to  contact their financial institution and the local police.  Anyone with information about this or any other crime is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at  1-800-222-8477.
