CHESTER, Va. (WRIC) — A skimming device was found on an ATM device at Argent Credit Union’s Chester location on Monday.

The credit union says action is being taken to notify all members whose cards were affected.

Argent also says members who have recently used their Check Card at the Chester ATM on Nov. 12 -13 could be vulnerable and at risk for fraudulent activity.

The Chesterfield County Police Department released the following information to 8News:

Apparently, a skimming device was put on and taken off the ATM of Argent Credit Union by an unknown suspect. In the meantime, at least one person’s ATM debit card was compromised over the weekend resulting in the information being used at various other ATM’s for withdraws from the victim’s account for approximately $900.

The personal information that could be at risk includes: your name, card number, expiration date and personal identification number.

Letters will be going out to all members who’ve been affected, stating that their compromised cards will be blocked, according to Argent. They are also replacing the Check Cards and any losses related to fraud will be restored.
