US discovers “new” type of ATM fraud

Fraudsters have been rigging up ATMs with fake slots and cameras to get the information they need to clone your debit or credit card and get your PIN number here for a long time (maybe 2-3 years). It’s old hat.

Of course, unless it happens in the US, it doesn’t happen, so this story from CNN/Money, recounts that thieves in the US are doing it too.

I guess this is another of the way in which the UK is miles ahead of the US.
