Woodburn, OR – On Friday, January 11, at about 11:57 a.m., the Woodburn Police Department (WPD) was notified by the N. Evergreen Rd Columbia Bank branch that a skimming device was located on their outdoor ATM. A customer noticed the ATM was not receiving their card normally and reported it to the bank staff. The staff checked the ATM and noted it was more difficult than normal to put the card into the machine. They immediately notified a security technician and WPD.

For additional security, Columbia Bank suspended the 11 accounts associated with debit cards used in the ATM during the time the skimming machine was undetected.
