Illinois residents warned about ATM scam

CHICAGO (AP) — The Illinois attorney general is warning residents about hackers gaining unauthorized access to bank accounts and illegally withdrawing money from ATMS.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says the warning follows a report by federal banking regulators that there has been an increase in the number of illegal withdrawals from banks.

Authorities say criminals are engaged in sophisticated scams that involve obtaining bank employee login information. They then create fraudulent ATM cards and delete or alter systems that alert banks to unusual ATM activity.

Madigan's office says residents should monitor bank and credit card accounts daily and report any unauthorized charges or other activity.
