Agents from the Pennsylvania Attorney General's office are looking for suspect in an ATM card theft ring operating in suburban Philadelphia.

At least three people have been photographed using compromised bank cards to obtain cash from ATM machines at convenience stores and other locations in Montgomery and Bucks counties.

Agents have documented activity at eight different locations in the Norristown and Bensalem areas.

Additionally, Corbett said it appears that the card thieves have made unauthorized withdrawals from at least three different locations around Abington, Maryland.

Investigators say it appears the thieves are somehow obtaining ATM card data, including PIN numbers, without the victims' knowledge - and that information is being used to generate duplicate debit cards.

At this time, agents believe the ATM card fraud ring involves several different suspects, working alone or in small groups.

Anyone with information that could help identify these suspected ATM card thieves, or other tips related to this ongoing investigation, is urged to contact the Attorney General's Office at 610-631-5987
