Skimming device used on cash machine inside Kent Fred Meyer store

Kent Police want anyone who used the Alaska Credit Union ATM machine inside the Fred Meyer store, 10201 S.E. 240th St., in the past two weeks and has suspicious activity on their account to call 911.

Someone placed a skimming device on the cash machine, according to a Kent Police Twitter post. A skimming device can allow someone to record customers’ account information and PINs, create their own bank cards and steal from the accounts.
