SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department seeks the public’s help to identify and locate a man suspected of fraudulently making withdrawals from automated teller machines in the downtown area.
Investigators believe the suspect placed a skimming device in a vending machine in the lobby of the U.S. Post Office, 5495 S. 4015 W., between December 13-18, 2013. The device enabled him to obtain users debit/credit card numbers and pin numbers. He was then able to transfer that information to blank debit/credit cards and used them to make withdrawals at ATMs in the downtown Salt Lake City area this month.
