The 4th of July is upon us!! Did you also know that weekends & holiday's are also big days for ATM Fraud? While you may think you know what card skimmers look like, did you also know that some of these devices cover the WHOLE ATM?!?! There are also devices out there that actually "trap" money as it is deposited or dispensed.
If you are a business operator that may have an ATM on your site, this document is very helpful for you to spot a compromised device. As a consumer, it is also good to know what these devices look like and how they work.
REMEMBER: The best defense against most of these devices is to simply cover/hide the PIN pad as you enter the PIN since most depend on a camera catching what numbers you press. While there are skimmers out there that mimic the PIN pad, these are much more expensive for the crooks to use themselves and are not as common.
Check out the document or images below for examples! This information will remain in our "Fraud/Scams" section of our page.
