Greece Police warn about ATM scam

GREECE, N.Y. (WHEC) — Greece Police Tuesday warned the public about a scam that’s been happening in the greater Rochester area.

They say criminals will come up to people at the ATM, give them a check and ask them to deposit that check into their personal bank account.

Then, in return, they have their victims take out cash to give them back and have the victims keep some of the money for helping them.

The problem is, in a few days the bank calls to tell victims the check was fake and they’re out the money.

Police anyone approached at ATM should call 911 as soon as possible.

Two men were arrested in Gates after a similar scam was attempted about two weeks ago.
