At least 65 members of Credit Union One had their banking information stolen by a thief who installed a skimming device onto an ATM. 

Credit Union One says between June 21 and 22, a man is captured on video installing, then removing a skimming device. Police say the money was not taken out of bank accounts for around another month, between July 15 and 21. Victims saw anywhere between $300 to $1,000 taken out of their account. 

“That creeps me out big time, it should creep out a lot of people,” said Bill Roose, who had $500 taken out of his bank account. 

Donna Reid with Credit Union One says anyone can become a victim, and you should always check your surroundings before using an ATM. 

“Take a look at where you’re inserting your card, actually grab a hold of this and see if it moves,” said Reid. “If there is any movement in here I can guarantee you it’s probably a skimming device that had been placed on it.” 

Also, look for cameras and keyboard pads over pin pads to capture pin numbers. 

Reid says everyone's money has already been reimbursed.
