SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Dept.'s financial crimes detectives offered tips for preventing ATM fraud:

  • Pay close attention to ATMs when using them.
  • Make sure none of the parts of the Automated Teller Machine can be removed because skimmer devices can be taped or glued on.
  • Notify your bank if you're traveling outside the area. Then if fraudulent charges show up from outside the area, the bank will know to notify you.
  • Check bank accounts often for charges associated with it.
