From The New York Shitty Inbox: Skimmed?

An anonymous tipster writes:

Hey Heather,

Thought I’d give you a heads up- someone installed a skimmer on the door card reader for the Greenpoint HSBC branch.  My card was copied, and someone took $1000 out of my account (not that I had $1000, but now I have $850 overdrafted and am missing $150).  One of the workers at the branch said it happened last Sunday, and I just today got the call from the fraud department.

Anyway, just wanted to let you know, if you wanted to post up on NYS just in case other people have been scammed 🙁

Thanks as always for the intrepid reporting! 🙂
