Wow, that’s a lot of cash to be withdrawing. I feel sorry for the person who’s atm card got cloned. That’s why you should set up phone alerts on your cards with thresholds to try and prevent unauthorized transactions.


All cases seem to be COLD cases. We only hear about these story’s a month or more or more after they happen. How about a weekly meeting to let us know what s happening???


Today is April 17th! Why are we hearing about this now??? The public should be told about this straight away. Tired of reading this stuff a month later. 108 needs to let us know about this stuff when it happens. Also how is it possible that this ass could keep using the card???
