Skimmer found on West Wichita ATM

Posted: Updated:

Wichita Police are investigating after a skimmer was found on a credit union's automated teller machine.

Employees at Mid American Credit Union, 8404 W. Kellogg, discovered the skimmer Friday afternoon after watching security video. The skimmer was handed over to police.

Skimmers are card readers placed over an ATM's card slot. The skimmer stores the information on a card's magnetic strip.

Mid American President and CEO Jim Holt said they've identified less than 50 cards used after the ATM was compromised. Those card holders have been notified. Mid American Credit Union members impacted will receive new cards.
