Police in East Lancashire are warning people to be aware of cash machine fraud following the discovery of a ‘skimmer’ device in Bacup.
It was found on the machine at the Coop store on Irwell Street last night.
The devices can record all the details off a bank card.
Police are urging people to be extra vigilant when using cash machines, and have advised checking for "scratches, sticky residue, tape or other signs of tamper as well as any part of the machine that looks like it's newer, or made from a different material than the rest."
