  • ATM SkimmingBefore inserting your card, try jiggling the slot and see if it moves.

There have been recent reports of credit and debit card skimmers in Florida, including Jacksonville, Gainesville and Palm Coast. Always be alert and watch for suspicious activity. If you find a skimming device, contact the police immediately.
