Card skimming at Virginia Credit Union ATMs

Virginia Credit Union is notifying members that card skimming occurred at several of its ATMs and roughly 2,000 debit cards have been determined to be vulnerable to potential fraud.

According to a notification posted to the Virginia Credit Union website, the card skimming took place at the Southpark and Glenside branches “over a limited period of time.” A card skimming effort was disrupted at a third location, but “the skimming device and card information were recovered and card information was not at risk.”

Virginia Credit Union – which reminds members that this was not a breach of data systems – is notifying all potentially affected members, sending them new debit cards, and assuring them that they have $0 liability.

An investigation is ongoing.
