    Cloned cards? Wow! We’ve finally arrived. Criminals are now high tech savvy. Hope they got the right guys.

    That’s old…

  4. Shell says:

    damn crazy. They should disclose the ATM locations. That would be helpful to public that may use these ATMs. smh

  5. Pay Attention says:

    People should monitor their account activity more frequently. We are living in the ages where card fraud is becoming larger than we think . I wish they will make statements when they find culprits guilty because it’s one thing to say they have made arrests but in reality are they really gonna be able to find them guilty in court? .

    Which bank??

  9. mmm says:

    Hopefully the banks will speak to the public soon in how to minimize the possibility of their financial information being mis-used / stolen. Now its important, also to say whether or not the bank is liable at all.

    Time to start choppin these boys hands off like the middle east to teach them a lesson. Obviously some of their buddies or relatives work in the banks, and don’t get me started on people who work at banks doing favors for others. Bank employees steal from people all the time, like that one lady who stole $80,000 from an elderly couple to buy a “SUV because she needed an SUV”.

    Did she get in trouble?

    Wake up people and start punishing these “people” and stop letting them off based on STUPID reasons.

  11. Allan says:

    Yes it would be nice if the police would be transparent and let us know exactly which ATM machines they referring to, so we can check the appropriate account. But as is usual practice in Bermuda the main thing is damage control.

  12. Justify says:

    Why bother making an arrest when there will be no conviction? Some relative will get them off with some type of slap on the wrist and some female will continue to breast feed these pukes and treat them like little babies, when will people wake up on this Island and realize that this is paradise lost? Instead of building more hotels and so called resorts, build another prison so that these pukes will at least have the threat of serving time. Everyone knows that in order to place one puke on lock down, another has to be released, more prison space please!
