More skimming going on
Identity thieves stealing information through ATM skimming devices are increasingly preying on customers in Queens, with reports of skimming incidents quadrupling in a 10-week time period this year compared to last, police say.
The NYPD is posting warning fliers on ATMs in East Elmhurst, Jackson Heights and North Corona, showing customers how to spot a skimming device. Skimmers have been found in ATMs at gas stations and convenience stores, and the high-tech devices resemble real cardreaders.

You know what would be useful? A scan of that flyer so we know what to look out for.
Just like the video says. Always cover the key pad with your hand. And check over the atm machine. It is a shame that we have to do all of this to get a couple of dollars. I know a lot of people who just go inside the bank to the teller to get their money.
Don't use an atm unless it is in a bank. Use those portable machines and you have a good chance of being hacked. Some aren't veven on secure lines......
