Crime Alert: Fake ATM scanner found near campus

Tampa police discovered a false scanner at the Bank of America ATM, located at 1720 E Fowler Ave, just past University Mall.

Burglars capture the bank card numbers by putting a small camera near the PIN keypad and placing their own card readers over the ATM readers, said Tampa police.

Police do not believe anyone’s money was stolen from that device. Students who see a discrepancy on their account can call Bank of America at 1-800-848-6090.
