The data breach occurred when one individual installed a skimming device at the ATM at 7010 Amador Plaza Road in Dublin, California. The device was in place between February 8 and March 14, 2023. During that period of more than one month, many ATM users could have been ripped off.
The ATM data breach began on February 8, 2023, and persisted until March 14, 2023. During that time period, a skimming device was left installed in the ATM and gathered data from a large number of individuals.
This Patelco Credit Union ATM breach impacts any customers that used the ATM while the card skimmer was installed. If you used the ATM during the dates mentioned above, there's a good chance your credit card data was taken.
No files from the credit union were accessed during this breach. Instead, card details were skimmed straight from a single ATM machine.
