SALINA, Kan. (AP) – Salina police are investigating a widespread bank card fraud in the area.
Since Sunday, police have received 147 reports of compromised bank cards, all from Sunflower Bank Customers or people who used a Sunflower ATM machine.
KSAL reports Salina Detective Sgt. David Villanueva says the reports started Sunday, when four people reported unauthorized cash withdrawals from their bank accounts. He says the thieves have stolen PIN codes and use those to withdraw the cash.
The total amount of losses has not been released but investigators say some people lost thousands of dollars.
Authorities say withdrawals using the stolen numbers have been reported in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and in Kansas City, Missouri.
