Fairfax County police found a similar device on the same ATM machine at Inova Fairfax in August.
For the second time this year Fairfax County Police have found a skimmer device on an ATM at Inova Fairfax Hospital.

In late August, police say a skimming device was placed on an ATM inside the hospital. Caldwell said thousands of dollars were stolen from accounts that were breached because of the device. It’s unknown exactly how …
