|ATM Card Skimming Devices like the one shown here record your information while you bank.|
A Trio of Hispanics, two males and one female, were attempting to install a card skimming device over an ATM keypad when a witness called the police. The police attended the scene and conducted a search of the area but they were unable to locate the culprits.
Card skimmers have been used in a number of schemes to steal money from ATM users. The device reads the card and records as the user inputs their PIN code. These devices are disguised to blend in to the machine and can be difficult to spot. In a typical card skimming operation, bank cards are forged using the information collected and are used to withdraw funds from their unsuspecting victims.
Fortunately, for users of this bank machine the device, which was equipped with a pinhole camera, was uncovered prior to collecting any information and the Delta police have seized it for forensic examination.
