What is Card Skimming?
Card skimming (also known as ATM skimming) is when a fraudster is able to copy your debit or credit card data from the magnetic strip on your card when it is used. Typically, a small, hidden camera is also set up to capture your PIN as you enter it while making a payment.
It’s sometimes hard to tell the difference between reputable online sellers and criminals who use the Internet to rob people.
The Internet offers a global marketplace for consumers and businesses. But crooks also recognize the potentials of cyberspace. The same scams that have been conducted by mail and phone can now be found on the World Wide Web and in email, and new cyberscams are emerging.
