Card skimming device found at St Andrews ATM

A card skimming device has been found at an ATM in Fife.

It was found in Market Street in St Andrews on Wednesday. Police Scotland are now warning people to check machines before they insert a card.

Sgt Neil Johnston, of Police Scotland, said: "If you suspect an ATM has been interfered with, do not use it.

"If the cash machine is attached to a bank and the bank is open, then alert the staff who will check the machine." If not, police should be called.

Sgt Johnston added: "If you believe you may have used this ATM prior to Wednesday then check your bank account immediately and report any suspicious transactions you notice to police immediately."
