All over the country, cases are popping up of crooks installing “skimmers” on ATMs and getting your debit and credit card information. And now they’re also using a new device to get your PIN number as you type it.
A skimmer can be hard to spot. It’s a small electronic device placed right over the card reader that looks like it’s part of the machine and is nearly impossible to see. But as you’re withdrawing your cash, it’s recording your credit card information for the crooks.
