GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police said Thursday that card skimmers have been located at Walmart stores in Greensboro.
This comes a little more than a week after High Point police said they were investigating card skimmers found at their Walmart stores on North Main Street and South Main Street. Police said the skimmers at High Point stores were found at manned registers, not self-checkout.
Greensboro police said the skimmers were found at the Wendover Avenue and Battleground Avenue Walmart stores. Police didn't say whether anyone has reported fraudulent activity on their card or how the skimmers were spotted.
"We have found a few at Greensboro Walmart stores and are currently working with other agencies for follow-up," a Greensboro police spokesperson told us.
An employee spotted one of the skimmers at a High Point store.
"These things are literally just like a face plate overlay. They are fairly thin plastic and they just snap over. They look just like the device itself," Lt. Kim Rieson with HPPD said.
In the High Point cases, police said victims reported theft on their Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards.
If you have any information for police, call Greensboro Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000.
