Police in Perth say they have received more reports of bank cards being skimmed at McDonalds fast food restaurants.

More than $4-million has been stolen from bank accounts in an EFTPOS skimming scam in recent weeks.

Ros Weatherall from Police Media, says several more people have complained to the Fraud Squad that money has been stolen from their account.

"We've had a fresh batch of people that have had their cards skimmed on Friday and police are suggesting that if you have used your EFTPOS card during the past six weeks at any McDonalds store that you change your PIN and you do this via your financial institution," she said.
