Skimmer suspect with Sloppy Tech Skills At Large
April 23, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fraud detectives are hoping extremely clear surveillance photos will lead to the identification of the criminal who sloppily installed a debit/credit card skimmer device Sunday morning on Bank of America’s Hickory Plaza ATM at 5801 Nolensville Pike.
The photos show the suspect approach the ATM at 11:21 a.m. Sunday. He installs the skimmer and walks away. A few minutes later, a customer drives up to the ATM to conduct a transaction. She is surprised to not only have the device come off the machine in her hand, but then to see the suspect hurriedly approach and retrieve it. He left the area on foot.
Skimmer devices are used by suspects to surreptitiously steal citizens’ debit/credit card numbers and PINs. They use the information to buy items before the customer knows that he or she has been victimized.
Anyone recognizing the suspect in the case, a black man who wore a Florida Gators ball cap and a white polo jacket, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME. Citizens can also send an electronic tip to Crime Stoppers by texting the word “CASH” along with their message to 274637 (CRIMES) or online at www.nashvillecrimestoppers.com
. Persons who contact Crime Stoppers by phone, text or Internet can remain anonymous.
