If you've used the ATM at Congressional Plaza in Montgomery County recently, keep an eye on your account.

Rockville Police found a skimming device at Wachovia Bank's automated teller machine on the 1600 block of Rockville Pike in Rockville Saturday night. These devices are attached to ATMs to capture bank customers' card numbers, often working in tandem with a small hidden camera that records the user's PIN.

An alert citizen had reported seeing some sort of skimming device, said police. Police have removed the device and are invesitgating.

The bank has been notified. Police said if you used the ATM, check for strange activity on your account and report it to the bank as soon as possible.
