Credit card skimmers found in Silver Bay, Beaver Bay

The Silver Bay Police Department along with the Lake County Sheriff's Office have been investigating cases of credit card fraud.

Two credit card readers were located and removed in Silver Bay and Beaver Bay in the last two weeks. These credit card readers collect users' credit card information. The readers were either removed from the machines or downloaded remotely.

"We suggest that everyone check their bank accounts for fraudulent activity, and if there are transactions that you were unaware of or sure you didn't make, contact your banking institution and report the fraud," the law enforcement agencies said in a press release. "The banking institution will contact either the police department or sheriff's office.

"We would like to remind everyone to be vigilant and if they see anything suspicious, please notify the Lake County Sheriff's Office or the Silver Bay Police Department."
