ATM Skimming Devices Hit the Pacific Northwest

While ATM skimming is not a new threat to financial institutions, it appears that Oregon is being targeted right now. There have been several reported incidents involving skimming devices found on ATMs up and down the I-5 corridor in Oregon. While it is unknown which direction the fraudsters are moving, it is a possibility that Washington credit unions may have been targeted as well.

A skimming device fits over the ATM's card reader. Hidden cameras or wandering eyes take down your pin.
Here's what to look out for when using an ATM:

β€’A skimmer is often times no bigger than a deck of cards and blends right in with ATM, looking like  a piece of plastic that belongs on the machine. Make sure your ATM doesn't have wires hanging from it, or look like its been tampered with -- before you go to use it.

β€’Police say you should make sure the slot to read your card is the same color as the rest of the machine and look for any nuts or bolts out of place.

β€’A card might not go into the ATM smoothly, or there may be something added to the machine. In that case, don't use the card and notify the bank right away.

Here are some things you can do if you've been impacted by skimmers or if you're concerned:

β€’Change your PIN at one of our 4 branch ATM's or at our Hazel Dell location
β€’Review your account and report suspicious actively
β€’When entering your PIN, make sure you use your hand to cover, it so that it can not be seen.
β€’If you see unauthorized activity on your account, contact us immediately.


If you find any fraudulent activity on your account, please contact us immediately by calling 800-252-6525 or coming into any one of our 4 locations.

Below is an example of what an ATM skimmer may look like.  The one on the right has the skimmer in place over the card reading slot.
