Park Slope Debit & Credit Card Fraud Victims Being Sought

We got an email from Lee Kushnir at WCBS, who is working on a story related to some of the credit and debit card fraud about which we and others have posted frequently. Apparently, one of the focuses is Citibank and ATM machines in and around Park Slope. She is looking to talk with victims of the scams and figure it was worth passing along if anyone wants to talk about it. Here's the email:
I am working on a story regarding an ATM scam that has been affecting Park Slope residents. If you have gotten fraudulent charges on your cards and been the victim of credit/debit theft in the area, please email me at lkushnir@cbs.com.
Over the weekend, we noticed that the weird outdoor ATM machine that had appeared at Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park West for a couple of months was gone, although we don't know when it vanished.

Perhaps they removed it because they were fined by the NYC DOT for illegally placing an ATM on the sidewalk.

I'd be interested to know if anyone ever got money out of the PPW ATM. Or did it always say, Temporarily Out of Cash?

If so, it was a collection machine, gathering people's ATM numbers--along with their PINs.

Could a non-Sloper be that clever?
