A rash of apparent ATM skimming crimes in Kenya — including several incidents reported since Christmas Eve — have prompted the opening of an investigation by the country's Banking Fraud Investigation Department.

An article by All Africa reported that more than 30 cases of fraudulent ATM transactions were reported over a three-day period. Police are now working with the banks involved to review CCTV recordings in the hopes of identifying suspects.

Police have advised bank guards to be on the alert for suspicious activity at ATMs, and to inform police of any possible tampering. Banks are also urging customers to change their PINs.

So far, no suspect had been arrested in the recent skimming attacks, but the All Africa story quoted authorities as saying that "there are those who are being pursued, including foreigners."
