About 1,000 members of One Nevada Credit Union were victims of a card skimming device Thursday.

Coco Faye lost $5,000 as a result of the security breach. She was hit at the location near Blue Diamond Road and Decatur Boulevard.

However, One Nevada's president says Faye is being reimbursed along with everyone else who had money taken from the ATM.

"You think all your money's gone," member Alante Gray said. "You think what other information could've been taken out."

Existing cards are being canceled and new ones are being issued. For some the new card was a precaution, as no money was taken from their accounts.

Even though the incident is being controlled, customers were angry about the incident.

"It's just the way things are going today," said member Herb Bryant. "People are getting better with computers and finding more ways to get around firewalls and such where they can just break in and take people's money all the time."  

The credit union's president says there is no longer a risk to any credit union customers. Las Vegas police are investigating.
