Authorities are warning Iowans to closely check ATMs and gas pumps before using them. FBI investigators said a group of criminals based in Des Moines have been attaching skimmer devices to drive-up ATMs throughout Iowa. The skimmers are used to steal your credit or debit card information.
KMEG-TV (Sioux City) reports that FBI officials said a group of Eastern Europeans working out of Des Moines are attaching the fake card readers to ATMs and at gas stations.
The Spencer Chamber of Commerce is warning residents ahead of the start of the Clay County Fair in Spencer this weekend about the skimmers, KMEG said.
