We would like to make everyone aware that our department has received multiple reports of debit and credit card accounts being compromised over the holidays here in Piedmont.
Most of these reports have included a possible nexus to the use of the ATM at the Bank of America located at 345 Highland Avenue. Piedmont Investigators are working closely with B of A Security to pin point the exact source of the breach.
In the meantime, we ask that anyone who has used the ATM please check your bank accounts for any unusual activity.
