Consumerist.com reports that a “card skimmer” was recently found on a local Chase/WaMu ATM.
Skimmers are little doodads that fit over the card slot, look like they belong there, but end up capturing your card number as you slide it into the machine. Some skimmers even have a tiny camera that record the keypad as you enter your pin number. Ahh, the wonders of technology!
Feeling paranoid? You should be. For more on how skimmers work, and how to spot one, check out The Consumerist.
