Miami Beach Police release images of 2 men suspected of installing card skimmer on ATMs

MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Security cameras have captured a pair of men installing a credit card skimmer on an ATM in Miami Beach.

According to Miami Beach Police, two subjects were captured on a security camera installing a skimmer on an ATM at the City National Bank, located on 446 Collins Ave., last Saturday.

Hours later, a customer found the skimmer and removed it from the machine, said police.

Shortly after, the two men came back and removed a camera they had installed. Police said this indicated they were in the area monitoring the ATM.

“City National Bank goes to great lengths to protect the privacy and security of our clients and in fact it was a City National Bank employee that first reported this to the police after noticing suspicious activity at one of our ATMs,” said the bank’s spokesperson Eddie Dominguez. “It was the employee’s vigilance that allowed investigators to have photographs of these fraudsters, who are targeting ATMs throughout Miami Beach. We take very seriously our duty to protect our clients and the community, and we are assisting the police department with this investigation.”
A bank investigator then discovered that one of these two subjects had previously been confronted by an employee of another bank, located at 475 W. 41st St., on July 11. This bank employee said the subject had been acting suspiciously at their ATM.

According to police, the employee of this bank said the subject had a Russian accent.

Miami Beach Police detectives believe no one was compromised during the short time the skimmer was active.

If you have any information regarding these subjects, please contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
