I was just surfing the BBC news for information about the new Governor of the Bank of England and found this as the #1 most viewed video clip today.
The story is about a Romanian fraudster who admitted to stealing
£3 million from a card-skimming scam. He
couldn’t exactly deny it, as he was caught red-handed on CCTV when he returned
to collect his high-tech skimmer.
After his arrest, police discovered he had
obtained about 9,000 bank card PIN numbers.
The only thing that gets me is that I’ve
seen these skimmers for years, and would have thought that the ATM technology would have developed far
enough by now to stop such fraud happening.
We just need to upgrade those ATMs.
