So far, no reports have been made to the police regarding any fraudulent activity after using the machine.
Other cash machines in Driffield have also been checked and do not appear to have been tampered with.
Driffield neighbourhood officer, PC Steve Wilson, said: "Criminals use the copied details to produce a fake magnetic stripe card, which will be used with the correct pin at cash machines or shops that haven't yet been upgraded to chip and pin.
"Customers who shield the keypad when they enter their pin are much less likely to fall victim to this type of fraud."
