Cristina Muniz of the southwest valley was at her bank’s ATM when she noticed her account balance was lower than she’d expected.

“I thought it was a little weird, so I started asking questions,” said Muniz, who was living in California at the time. She found out that $1,000 had been taken out of the account within that hour.

Muniz filed a report with the bank and later learned she had been a victim of a gas pump scam.
