Make sure the device isn’t able to be moved or budges when touched.
Compare your machine to the one next to you, if applicable.
Check the alignment of the card reader and the panel underneath it.
Look inside of the card reader before inserting your card.
If you see or suspect a card skimmer, please contact police immediately at 911.
Notify your bank immediately if you suspect you have been a victim of card skimming.

The suspects were captured by nearby cameras and can be seen in the photos below:
