ATM scam

A team of well thought-out criminals is installing equipment on rightful bank ATMs to steal both ATM card number and PIN. The team sits nearby in a car receiving information transmitted wirelessly over weekends from equipment they install on the front of the ATM. If you see an attachment, do not use ATM and report it directly to the bank or phone on the front of ATM.

The equipment used to detain your ATM card number and PIN is skillfully concealed to look like normal ATM equipment. A skimmer is mounted to the front of normal ATM card slot that reads the ATM card number and transmits it to the criminals sitting in a nearby car. A wireless camera is disguised to look like a leaflet holder and is in a position to view ATM PIN entries.

The thieves copy the cards and use PIN numbers to extract thousands from numerous accounts in a very short time directly from ATM.
Beware of ATM scams.
