JUST IN: After BPI incident, Some BDO ATMs Might Have Been 'Compromised'

MANILA, PHILIPPINES - One of the biggest banking company in the Philipines, BDO, said today June 16 that it received reports of alleged ATM fraud and urged depositors who think they were affected to have their cases investigated by the bank.

Social media posts circulated this week purportedly showed how some depositors lost money due to "skimming" or copying of account details through hijacked ATM machines.

Did you lose money in your ATM card even if you didn’t withdraw any cash?

If you did, report it at once to BDO Unibank, Inc.

The country’s largest bank on Friday, June 16, issued a public advisory that it had “obtained reports of potentially compromised ATMs, following reported losses from cardholders.”

“Customers with unauthorized transactions may reach out to the bank via formal channels so that their cases may be properly investigated and, where confirmed as impacted, may be reimbursed,” BDO said.

“BDO would like to reassure the public that it exerts all efforts to protect its cardholders and their transactions,” it added.

Bank sources said the reported incidents of unauthorized withdrawals via compromised ATM cards were isolated but BDO wanted customers to know that the company has a quick recourse to address transaction irregularities.

UPDATE: BDO has made an official statement regarding the skimming.
