We have discussed this before: Thieves compromise an ATM at a 7-11, or the electronic payment computer at a gas station pump. They can “skim” (or read) the information on credit and debit cards and then “clone” cards are made and used. Well, a new scam has come over from Europe, with the same basic idea: A crook gains access to the ATM machine and rigs it to pay out – a lot. It’s called “jackpotting” and the cleverness that criminals use to do their nefarious deeds never ceases to amaze me! We’ll look at this one, today, when we go Beyond The Norm!

And, these three links are eye-opening!
