Ben Tedesco was having a nice vacation in Vienna, but that all changed when he found an ATM Skimmer. He has recorded everything and he has made the video public.
In the video we are able to see how the skimmers had attached the skimming device to the ATM. This is the most common method you will see, so if you are going to an ATM, always check the ports where you need to insert your card. Check if it is solid and if there is no second camera nearby.
Ben Tedesco explains that while he was on a vacation in Vienna, Austria, he found out the fake ATM device:
While on vacation with my family in Vienna, Austria I went to grab some cash from an ATM, being security paranoid I went repeated my typical habit of checking the card reader as I have 100’s of times… today’s the day when my security awareness paid off! Check out how perfectly made this skimmer is that was custom made for this ATM MACHINE!
He states that he has reported this to the Vienna police:
I have since notified the Vienna Police Department regarding this discovery as at the time of the incident I did not have access to an international phone by which I could report this.
So dear readers, always check the ATM device!
