Westhampton Beach Police say they are investigating and believe a skimmer device, which reads personal information off ATM cards and can capture personal codes on camera, may have been used; however, police have not yet received confirmation from TD Bank.

The police have also obtained photos of a man withdrawing funds at various NYC ATMs and do not believe he is local.

The secret service is also involved in the investigation and police urge residents to always shielding the ATM keypad from the view of cameras with a free hand while typing in a PIN.

Also, if an ATM card swiper seems to stick out more than usual DO NOT USE IT! That's how the skimmer devices collect info - it sticks to the front of the ATM, and when you swipe your card, you're swiping both the ATM and the skimmer.
