ATM skimming in Paynesville

POLICE are investigating a series of ATM skimming incidents in Paynesville last month.

A skimming device was placed on an ATM in The Esplanade in Paynesville between June 22 and June 26.

The card information obtained was then used at numerous ATMs in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne on July 1.

Two males were seen in the vicinity around 6.15am and 6pm to 7pm each day the skimming occurred.

Both males are perceived to be of Indian sub-continental appearance and were wearing dark-coloured jackets and beanies.

The first male is described as 170 centimetres tall, about 35 to 40-years-old with a shaved head.

The second man is described as 180cm tall, about 30-years-old, with short dark curly hair.

Police would like to remind ATM customers to cover the key pad when using an ATM to protect their personal information.

Investigators have released images and CCTV of two men they believe can assist with their enquiries.
