CHESTER, VA (WWBT) - We are On Your Side an important alert: if you bank with Virginia Credit Union, your debit card may have been compromised.

We've just learned about another branch that was hit by ATM skimmers. Located in Chester, this is the third confirmed VACU branch to have skimming devices secretly installed in its ATMs. The other locations are at its Glenside and Southpark branches.

The skimmers put a small camera that is disguised on the ATM so that they can steal your pin number.

Here are some things you can do if you've been impacted by skimmers or if you're concerned:

  • Change your PIN
  • Review your account and report suspicious actively
  • When entering your PIN, make sure you use your hand to cover, it so that it can not be seen.

Earlier this week, the company said more than 2,000 customers had been impacted by skimmers at the Southpark and Glenside branches. The credit union says it stopped skimmers from placing a device at the Hanover branch ATM.

The credit union is reaching out to customers that may be impacted so they can be issued new bank cards.
