Alert: Credit And Debit Card Skimmer May Have Tried To Pull A Scheme At Local Ridgewood Savings Bank

A local tipster sent us a note about police activity in front of Ridgewood Savings Bank at 7124 18th Avenue. A card skimmer may have been attempting to lift card numbers from the ATM.

A bank representative would not confirm whether or not the crime took place, however, he did state that account holders and those that have used the ATM this past week should carefully go over their account statements for any suspicious activity.

The rep added that if clients notice a letter from their banking institution in the mail, Ridgewood or otherwise, they should open it as it may contain important information pertaining to their fraudulent card usage.
