ATM skimmer hits Rock Hill credit union

ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Another incident of ATM skimming was discovered Sunday morning by a credit union employee. It happened at the Arrow Pointe Credit Union in Rock Hill.

"I want to say surprised and skeptical, but honestly not that surprised," said Carrie Blankenship.

Blankenship lives in Rock Hill and says it seems like crooks will go to just about any length to swipe your money.

"There's always been crime it just changes as the technology changes," Blankenship said. "It's not so much pick pockets it's ATM skimmers."

Rock Hill Police say the ArrowPointe Credit Union on Celanese Road was the latest victim to an ATM skimming device. They say an employee discovered it Sunday morning. Brenda Boatwright was finishing dinner across the street tonight when we told her.

"Very scary," Boatwright said. "You don't even want to put your money in the bank because you feel like you can't get it out to start with. You don't trust anybody."

We've seen cases of this before, like at a 7-eleven in Indian Trail a couple of months ago.

Pay attention the next time you're at the ATM and of course, always check your bank statements for suspicious purchases or withdrawals.

"Every time I do I kind of check and make sure it looks like it's supposed to look because you hear of those things happening and I just don't even know if I would know," Blankenship.

Blankenship told us in this day and age with so many online and mobile banking options, she tries to avoid the ATM. However, those can also put you at risk with hackers and thieves.
