    TD Bank contacted law enforcement this past Friday to investigate a possible “skimming” incident involving an illegally installed device at an ATM machine at TD Bank’s store in Medford, NJ. Protecting our customers’ personal information is something we take very seriously and we sincerely regret any inconvenience this incident has caused.

      Bank officials are contacting customers who may have been affected by this incident to answer questions and will work with them directly to address and correct any issues as quickly as possible.  
    TD Bank encourages all customers to be vigilant in protecting themselves from fraudulent activity by:
    •    Covering the keypad when entering their PIN at any ATM location to prevent it from being viewed
    •    Carefully reviewing bank statements and credit reports for unauthorized activity
    •    Immediately reporting any suspicious activity to TD Bank at 888-751-9000, local law enforcement and to the FTC at 1-877-FTC-HELP (877-382-4357)
