A CASH machine company will investigate a Worcester ATM following claims that a spy camera has been hidden to capture customer's pin numbers.

A man, who asked not to be named, posted a video on Facebook in which he insists that a spy camera has been fitted inside an empty bolthole on the ATM at Blackpole BP garage.

The same garage was used by fraudsters in 2006, who fitted a camera to the ATM to record people's bank details and stole thousands of pounds from customers.

When the Worcester News went to the Blackpole Road garage yesterday, a member of staff said: “The machine does not belong to us. It is a company called Cashzone who maintains the machines. We are not able to check it.”

A Cashzone spokeswoman told the Worcester News that the company would investigate the ATM.

Police were unable to confirm whether the suspicions regarding the cash machine had been reported to them.

In 2006, a total of £250,000 was stolen from the bank accounts of people who used the cash machines at the BP garage in Blackpole Road, its sister site in Castle Street, and Malthurst garage in Droitwich Road, Worcester.

A total of 167 people were victims of the con, with the fraudulent transactions taking place in Bangkok.
