ATM Skimmer

As banks get smarter, so do the ATM skimmer machines. This high-tech setup consists of: a speaker, modified cell phone, camera, card skimmer, and a Flash memory card. Basically, the scammer mounts a fake speaker over the keypad and once an ATM card is inserted, the card skimmer captures your account number. All that information is then transmitted to a modified cell phone, whilst a spy camera records the PIN number, sending it to the Flash memory card. Video after the break.
