ATM Scam (Card Skimming) Spring TX

ATM Scam Card Skimming Spring TX

ATM Scam Card Skimming Spring TXThe ATM scammers are getting quite technical on their scams.  I had a REALTOR friend here in Spring TX who was contacted by his bank and told to cancel his debit card and get a new one because an ATM scam (card skimming) had happened at the ATM machine he used.  Click here to see how it works.  According to the bank the equipment they used here in Spring was a little different but very similiar.  You can also check this out at Snopes.  

Click here to watch a video showing how one version of this scam works.

I rarely use my debit card at ATM machines as I find it convenient to get extra cash out when I do my grocery shopping.  After watching that video I think I will try to steer clear of the debit machines.  I have heard of this scam before but never thought of it actually taking place right here in Spring TX.  I guess the scammers can be anywhere so take careful precautions when using a debit machine.
