The FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division declined to comment on the issue. The Harvard University Police Department could not be reached for comment for this story.

The Citizen’s Alert urged citizens to take several precautions. According to the alert, customers should “be suspicious if you see anything loose, crooked, damaged, or if you notice scratches or tape residue,” cover the keypad when entering a PIN, and use an indoor ATM away from tourist areas when possible. Citizens suspicious of ATM fraud should contact the Cabridge police.
