Fibre Federal Credit Union is now confirming that “skimmers” have been placed on multiple ATM’s in Longview, Kalama and Woodland. On the credit union web page and on the company’s Facebook page, alerts have been posted, reporting that skimming devices were placed on ATM’s at the Fibre Federal branches in Kalama, Woodland, and on Ocean Beach Highway. At this time, they say that the devices were in place this past weekend, and the weekend before.

They say that they are actively researching enhanced security features that will help to combat skimmers and other ATM fraud.
