Everett financial crimes detectives have noted an increase in “skimmer” devices attached to ATMs to steal debit card information.
They say if the card reader seems loose, crooked, or damaged, if the graphics aren’t aligned, or if part of the machine is a different color, don’t insert or swipe your card. Also, if the numbers are hard to press or feel thick, it might have a false keypad installed and you should move on to the next machine. Using the “tap” option for payment or a mobile wallet such as Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, or Google Pay is safer than inserting a card.
Real-time 911 updates introduced

This includes the Snohomish Police Department, too!
