SKIMMERS: A NEW HIGH TECH METHOD OF IDENTITY THEFT 7 SEPT 2017
This post is a warning about a clever new high tech way of stealing your identity. Having been the victim myself of identity theft in 2013, I personally know how horrible it is. Now identity thieves have taken things to a new level. A small plastic reader is placed over an ATM slot or gas pump slot. As it looks normal, people put their cards in the slot and do their business, not realizing that their card information has been also read by the look alike skimmer. CBS has done a number of shows exposing this new tactic and I provide the link to one:
The suggested counter measure is to pull or tug on the slot to make sure it is attached. So far the look alike slot devices have not been solidly attached to the slot they are mimicking and will pull off.
Be blessed my friend.
