Willimantic police are warning of card skimmers after the department received several reports of the devices from local businesses.
Skimmers are devices placed on top of card readers that can steal credit and debit card information and are not always detectable to the average person.
Police said they’ve had reports from various ATMs, gas stations and other businesses in the area. They did not provide specific locations.
Authorities say that if you find a skimming device, you should not touch it and contact Willimantic Police Detective Dean at 860-465-3135 x324, or at email@example.com.
If you believe that your information was stolen by a card skimmer, contact police right away.
