Dear All
Important information

Bank ATM's Converted to Steal IDs of Bank Customers

A team of organized criminals are installing equipment on legitimate
bank ATM's in at least 2 regions to steal both the ATM card number and
the PIN. The team sits nearby in a car receiving the information
transmitted wirelessly over weekends and evenings from equipment they
install on the front of the ATM (see photos). If you see an attachment
like this, do not use the ATM and report it immediately to the bank
using the phone on the front of the ATM.

The equipment used to capture your ATM card number and PIN are
cleverly disguised to look like normal ATM equipment. A "skimmer" is
mounted to the front of the normal ATM card slot that reads the ATM
card number and transmits it to the criminals sitting in a nearby car.

At the same time, a wireless camera is disguised to look like a
leaflet holder and is mounted in a position to view ATM PIN entries.

The thieves copy the cards and use the PIN numbers to withdraw
thousands from many accounts in a very short time directly from the
bank ATM.

The PIN reading camera being installed on the ATM is housed in an
innocent looking leaflet enclosure.
