ATM Skimming – Consumers Beware! details in yet another way your electronic identity can be stolen.
I don’t understand how the extra swiper is being employed at ATM machines. I know that unscrupulous restaurant employees who you hand the card to can have a hand swiper that steals the information, but unless the whole ATM is a fraud, I don’t understand.
Anyhow, I only use ATM’s that belong to my bank. I live next to a Stop n Rob (Memphis slang for convenience store) and I picked my bank based on the ATM in that store. I only use other banks machines in extreme cases due to the ATM fees, and I never use third party machines.
Let’s be careful out there.
