Nigel police have warned of a gang that targets customers at ATM machines by trapping bank cards and then offering them help.

The offer of assistance is a guise for stealing cash.

Superintendent Eugene Opperman said the thieves used a card-trapping device.

"They convince the customer to punch their secret code to release the card. After the customer leaves, they withdraw money." - Sapa
