The Burlington Township Police Department would like to advise residents to two recent scams. On Thursday, December 8, 2017 a skimming device was placed on the ATM machine located at Beneficial Bank, 3 Sunset Road. No accounts were compromised as a result of this skimming device. Residents should take a moment and visually inspect the ATM machine when using older ATM machines. If there if anything suspicious about the exterior of the machine contact the police department.
