Codiac Regional RCMP is releasing new pictures of the bank card fraud suspects, including a photo of a new suspect, believed to have tampered with at least three point of sale terminals.

The suspects are targeting businesses with point of sale terminals, also known as debit machines, equipped with detachable cables. In addition, the terminals are not secured to the counter or a fixed support. If you have any doubts about the integrity of a terminal, use cash to make your purchase.

Since March, 5, 2012, Codiac RCMP has received over 100 formal complaints from people who have reported being victimized. It has been determined that point of sale terminals at three Greater Moncton businesses were compromised during the month of February. Codiac's General Investigation Section members are actively continuing their investigation to identify the suspects.

If anyone has information on the three individuals depicted in these photos, they are asked to contact Codiac Regional RCMP at 857-2400 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. (8477).
