Detectives with the Jonesboro Police Department have reason to believe that a skimming device is being used at an unknown location in the city limits of Jonesboro. A skimming device is used to capture credit or debit card information. This process is done without the knowledge of the card holder and results in financial information being collected by those responsible for hiding the device.
Victims have come forward and reported that unauthorized transactions have taken place on their bank accounts which have resulted in withdrawals of funds from those accounts.
Detectives suspect there are other victims of this crime. The Jonesboro Police Department is asking that people review their bank accounts and look for any unauthorized withdrawals or transactions and to immediately report those activities to their bank and then to file a report with the Jonesboro Police Department.
This is an investigation in the beginning stages of being worked. At this time Detectives are gathering evidence and following leads as they become available.
