Skimming devices are usually installed where you insert your payment card and around the panel for entering PIN, and there is also often hidden a little camera.
This device will copy data from your card and get a PIN.
How do you reveal this technique before you become a victim of stealing?
Quite simply, for most of the ATMs that have been illegally modified, just pull a couple of times the plastic cover, cover strip, where the card is normally inserted. If the cover stayed in your hand, you discovered a skimming device.
Of course, technology is evolving, as well as ways of installing illegal devices and mini cameras.
Some skimming chips are inserted deeper into the ATM input device and can no longer be easily detected.
So you should always cover the numbers, when entering the PIN with your other hand, not only against the people standing behind you but also against the ATM itself.
