BALDWIN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Police are looking for a suspect after credit card reading devices were found at ticket machines at a Long Island Rail Road station in Baldwin.
Workers found the card skimmers and tiny hidden cameras last week during a routine inspection, police said.
Skimmers steal information from the magnetic strip on credit and debit cards. Then, the tiny cameras record pin numbers as people punch them in.
“They are made to blend in to the ticket vending machine so that a customer wouldn’t necessarily detect anything,” LIRR Vice President of Customer Service and Public Affairs Joe Calderone told 1010 WINS.
