ATM Scam

I don’t known how many of you might have already heard of the car scam, where thieves are lay waiting persons in parking areas and copying their car information by air waves. I’m not too technical so if I’m using the wrong terms bear with me. Apparently the thieves are able to get the code to open your car doors when you use your automatic button on your car alarm to lock the doors. As soon as you leave the car unattended they proceed to rob you.

Well I understand that the same concept is being used at the ATM machines. A device is attached to the door of ATM booths that captures the information on the magnetic strip when you swipe to open the door. Then they have a hidden camera inside of the booth to get your PIN number.

 One recommendation is to use a card like a Magna Rewards card or even a health insurance card with a magnetic strip to open the door to the ATM. Yes, it contains some personal data, but not assess to your money. Can you imagine if we were to use the ‘cunning’ in this country to build it rather than to tear it down? From what I’ve heard, the good news is that four persons were arrested for fraud in the New Kingston area. I’m sure there are still more car and ATM thieves out there so please be careful.

Nuff Love
