Beware ATM scam

Residents and visitors to Cayman are being advised to be wary when using ATMs after the Financial Crimes Unit launched an investigation into a possible new scam.

Detectives launched the enquiry after receiving reports of a possible debit card scam taking place over the weekend. Officers would like to hear from anyone who experienced difficulty in carrying out a transaction and was subsequently approached by somebody offering to assist or from anyone who was asked to assist someone else in carrying out a transaction.

Anyone who thinks they could help with the investigation should contact the Financial Crime Unit on 949-8797.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1,000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
