Cops are looking for two men who installed an illegal card reader at an ATM at this TD Bank branch in Flushing.

Detectives are on the lookout for two suspects who are wanted for installing a card reader onto an ATM at a Flushing bank in the latest in a long line of skimming scams across Queens.

According to police, on Wednesday, Aug. 2, at approximately 11:20 p.m., the two suspects entered the ATM lobby of the TD Bank located at 196-42 Northern Blvd. in Flushing.

Law enforcement sources said both suspects entered and exited the location multiple times in the course of their visit. One of the perpetrators acted as a lookout while his partner installed the skimmer.

Sources familiar with the investigation said that the branch manager discovered the skimmer the following morning while inspecting the ATM. The incident was reported to the 111th Precinct.

Police said one of the suspects was observed wearing a black hat and black shirt and has a tattoo on his right shoulder, while the other wore a white Under Armour hat and a gray and purple shirt.

It is not known exactly how many people could have been affected by these skimmer, but anybody who uses this ATM should check their bank account and ensure they were not victims.

Back in March, officers from the 111th Precinct gave residents tips on how to avoid becoming a victim of this growing crime, including inspecting ATMs before using them and not using an ATM if it is the only one working among numerous broken machines. The NYPD also worked with local 7-Eleven stores to have all ATMs in the locations inspected and secured.

Anybody with information regarding the TD Bank skimmer or the suspects’ whereabouts should contact Detective James Lilla of the 111th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-330-1805 or Detective Borough Queens North at 646-610-5430. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
