Bob Uphues reports:

First National Bank of Brookfield‘s president last week said an investigation continues into the use of a card skimmer on its drive-thru ATM to gain PIN numbers of a large number of debit cards used during the weekend of Oct. 5-6.  The probe is ongoing and bank officials were “dedicated to making sure justice is done,” said Jan Schultz, the bank president.

In a letter to customers dated Oct. 8, the bank said that “a significant number of our ATM cards were fraudulently utilized.” The bank apologized “for the inconvenience and frustration this has caused.”
