6:34 am
activity down there. and of course with the temperatures it, means, ice, but salt has been placed down to limit ice development here firefighters had it under control, now the investigation starts commissioner said the fire in the basement it is possible, in a old building like this one the fire could have spread from the basement up to the fourth floor, see at walls, but they have to check that. and that's part of the investigation, we'll see if that exactly happened once they real release that information to us. >> looks like they're getting close, police asking for your help this morning, in identifying men who were caught on camera, for putting skimming devices at atm's throughout our area. >> here we go again. officials say, they've already been four cases of tampering with atm's, in the last month, that is just in south jersey. >> this could happen anywhere. >> oh, yes. all over the delaware valley, hey, steve? >> three of the four new
6:35 am
jersey at 7-eleven's, how about this for coincidence, exact 7-eleven i was at a week ago for last wednesday's power drawing here on chapel avenue. and you can see, the police say the reason the 7-eleven atm's are hit, look where the atm's are. they are all burried in the back corner, so somebody can tamper with that green plastic lit up card swiping machine there. and put a fake one over it, that stores your information, you don't even know you are putting through two devices then the people come back, they take the device, and then they have all of that information stored on their fake device, and then they make duplicate cards and wipe out your account. here is surveillance video, that philadelphia police coincidentally timely put out as well, at 1:30 yesterday afternoon, because this happened at beneficial bank on city avenue in the overbrook section. >> this guy with the glasses on, put the skimming device over, he is caught on surveillance, then here is our second video and the guy takes the glasses off, comes back with kim of friends, notice
6:36 am
the friends the distinct tiff puffy coat there. no disguises as they take the device off. and then they have all that information that all of the customers had on there between the time the machine was tampered with, and the time these guys took the device away. here's lieutenant scott walker. >> it is terrible, just people trying to make a quick buck, and just horrible that they can do this, without people knowing, because the device, the device you don't really see, and they're able to get your account information, your pin number rather quickly then go into your banks and take your money. and just unsuspecting, just terrible thing to know you have x amount of dollars in your bank, then go in the next day to get money and you see no money left. so terrible situation. these people clearly work quickly. and they work at multiple different locations, so we're hoping that the public did the right thing and call our tip line. and identify these individuals. >> so the question this morning, are these guys caught on the still pictures in philadelphia, the same guys that put the thing on here at the 7-eleven?
6:37 am
we don't know. alex, when you have budd manahan on next hour from the cherry hill police department the chief over here who is hanging out with us a week ago, ask him about any surveillance here. because the police have not put out surveillance over here yet. maybe philly police and cherry hill police can compare notes, maybe find out if it is the same guys, help catch him that way. >> good idea. i want to know what it looks like, so when you walk up to the machine? that doesn't look right. >> or somebody says if you put in the card and it is casino every loose, you know it has been tampered w now that's another clue, too. >> be careful. woman targeted randomly by a stranger. >> yes, this was after she waited for a train, now she speaks out about the horrifying ordeal. >> is this the woman. >> that was shoved on to the tracks? >> on to the tracks. >> here we go 27 year old lauren lickman, of fishtown attacked sunday. she was shoved off platform, septa platform, right on to the rales. this was at 40th and market. she says she looked up on to
