The warning comes after a skimming device was found on a machine in Newcastle on Saturday.
Skimming devices can be attached to a cash machine to enable criminals to copy the information on a bank card in order to lift cash from accounts.
Police are advising the public to take extra care when withdrawing money from cash machines and to report anything that may look out of place to the bank and the police.
They are also advising people to keep their pin safe and be aware of their surroundings and people around them when using machines.
