TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)- Debit and credit card skimmers continue to be an issue across the country and right here in the Big Bend.

Looking at your tv, can you spot the credit card skimmer?

The picture was posted on the Leon County Sheriff's Office Facebok page.

They say the skimmer - the green part - was found installed on an ATM in Tallahassee. They have not said specified where though.

Skimming devices secretly record bank account data when the user inserts an ATM card into the machine.

Deputies say if you are using an ATM be on the look out for anything suspicious.

If something doesn't look right or if the ATM looks altered in any way, go inside that bank and report it or contact the business where the ATM is located.
