BBB Warns of Skimming Fraud

BBB Warns of Skimming Fraud

 

 

 

 

August 29, 2012- The BBB of Central California is issuing a Skimming Warning to all consumers using debit cards or credit cards for point of sale purchases.

 

Skimming, a form of high-tech financial fraud, is on the rise worldwide. It relies on sophisticated data-reading electronics to copy the magnetic stripe information from your credit card or debit card. It can capture both your credit card number and your PIN. And it's happening at restaurants, neighborhood gas pumps and ATM machines.

 

Today a criminal merely has to slip an electronic magnetic strip reader over the existing card slot at an ATM, or replace a point of sale device.
