SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Sacramento authorities busted a major credit card skimming ring.
Investigators say four suspects set up cameras on ATM machines to record their victims' pin numbers. A skimming device was then used to capture credit card information.
So far, investigators have found skimming devices in Sacramento, Folsom and Reno. Authorities have also determined that at least 40 people have had their information stolen, and more skimming devices could still be out there.
"We know they have at least traveled through several states here on the West Coast and we are looking to see if they have victimized any more folks in other communities," said Sgt. Shaun Hampton of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.
Investigators encourage people to keep their information safe by covering up the keypad when typing in a pin number.
