Warning after cash card cloning scam

A Belper woman is urging people to be on their guard when using cash machines in the town after her card was cloned.

Louise Holmes, of Laund Hill, was sent a letter by Derbyshire Building Society’s Fraud Squad this week after withdrawing money from Morrisons and Lloyds TSB.

She said: “To my horror they said that my card had been cloned from either of the last two cash point transactions I made.

“People just need to be extra vigilant when withdrawing cash, someone was obviously watching me.”
