    The skimmer stole $700 from Glenn’s account.

     "I'm a single mom taking care of four kids," Glenn said.

    Direct Express said the loss of funds was her responsibility.

    "Really upsetting, because that's not a little bit of money to sweep up underneath the rug," Glenn said.

    She contacted Action 9 investigator Jason Stoogenke for help.

    Stoogenke emailed the State Employees Credit Union, which runs Cashpoints ATMs, and the credit union said there was a skimmer on the ATM.

    Stoogenke told Comerica, which is the bank that operates Direct Express, and it gave Glenn a refund.
