West Australians' bank accounts were continuing to be drained from old EFTPOS skimming rorts at McDonald's fast food restaurants, police said.

The Fraud Squad have had numerous reports that bank accounts were skimmed on Friday. More than $500,000 has been stolen from bank accounts in recent weeks.

Sergeant Graham Clifford from Police Media, said complaints were still coming in despite the skimming occurring between six and eight weeks ago.

"If you've been to a McDonald's store between six and eight weeks ago change your pin or if you're still worried order a new card," Sgt. Clifford said.
