The popular Bushwick restaurant is cash only.

Foursquare/Tino

An ATM outside popular cash-only Bushwick restaurant Momo Sushi Shack had a device on it that was stealing card information, according to the NYPD. Police discovered the skimming device, which is attached to regular ATMs, on November 24. It was unclear how long it had been attached or how many people had their information stolen from the device, police say.

The NYPD released photos of a man and woman who were spotted at ATMs across Brooklyn, taking out cash with fraudulent cards that were duplicates created using the skimming device. Skimming devices typically look "impermanent or imperfect" when attached to regular ATMs, according to Gothamist, which first reported the news. It's also helpful to cover up your fingers as you put in your PIN number.
