Investigators from the Miami Beach Police Department Economic Crimes Unit have been investigating an ATM fraud case involving one skimmer — who led them to Mt. Sinai Hospital.
Detectives traced the common point of transaction between victims to an ATM in the hospital, where in one police report, a “suspicious attachment” was discovered on the ATM machine.
Authorities believe several thousand dollars have been stolen because of the unknown skimmer.
Since May, at least 7 victims have been identified. In each case, the victim’s information was used for fraudulent charges.
