  • ATM Scammers’ New Tactic: Glue

     

    You can almost hear the scammers’ “Eureka!” moment in their evil
    dungeon lair: “We don’t need no stinking $5000 high-tech remote access
    Russian-built skimmer – we just need Elmer’s!” And then a crime is
    committed and history is made.


    The San Francisco Examiner reported,
    “thieves glued down the ‘enter,’ ‘cancel’ and ‘clear’ buttons on the
    keypad and wait until the customer goes into the bank for help before
    withdrawing money from their account. The robbed customers have already
    punched in their PINs when they realize the keypad buttons are stuck.
    The unwitting customers either do not know that they can use the ATM
    touch screen to finish their transaction, or become nervous when the
    keypad isn’t working and react by leaving the ATM.”


    Once the customer has gone into the bank to alert a manager or
    teller, the scammer walks up to the ATM and uses the touch screen to
    complete the transaction.


    Amazing. Even more amazing is that if a criminal were caught gluing ATM keys, he would most likely only receive a misdemeanor vandalism
    charge, as opposed to a larceny, which would put him in jail. The law
    has yet to catch up with this new and brilliantly simple crime.


    So if you happen upon a glued ATM remember that you can finish your
    transaction using the touch screen. Once you’ve done so, alert the bank
    manager as soon as possible so nobody else gets scammed!


    When using an ATM, pay close attention to the machine and be alert
    for anything that seems out of place. Wires, double sided tape, odd
    configurations or skimming devices on the face of the ATM, or a card
    that gets stuck in the reader are all red flags.


    Don’t necessarily use the first ATM you see. Choose ATMs in secure
    locations, and be on your guard, even when using an ATM at a bank
    branch.


    Above all, check your bank statements at least once every two weeks, and refute unauthorized transactions within 30 days.
