The Wendover Neighbourhood Policing Team is asking residents to be extra vigilant after a card skimming device was found on the cash point outside Budgens in the High Street, Wendover. It is unknown how long it has been there for and Officers are working with the staff at Budgens to look through CCTV to try and identify the offender/offenders.

The device was in two parts. One was above the screen pointing down towards the keypad. This was a piece of plastic the same colour as the machine and it had a very small hole in it and a small camera behind. The second part was a piece of plastic which was again, the same colour as the machine with a card slot on it which had a small device in it which took the details from any cards. This was stuck over the part where you put your card in.

If you notice anything suspicious about any of the cash machines then please do not use it, inform the shop and call Thames Valley Police on 101.
