Police have put the skids on an LIRR ticket vending machine scam.

Four people have been arrested for using hidden cameras and card skimmers to steal credit and debit card information.

They used the data to steal money directly from victim’s accounts.

Police recovered thousands of account numbers from residents all over Nassau, Queens, and even Westchester.

The MTA says they have since checked every ticket machine to make sure there are no remaining cameras or skimmers.
