Two Canadian men have been arrested for allegedly skimming ATMs in Christchurch and will appear in court on Monday.

Aged 28 and 39, the men have been charged with accessing a computer for a dishonest purpose and further charges are likely, says Detective Sergeant Joanne Parks.

Anyone noticing anything added to an ATM or anything unusual about an ATM should report it to the bank immediately, she says.
