small camera is placed somewhere that it can record both the keypad and your fingers as you enter your PIN. In cases where a small camera is not used, there will be a keyboard overlay fitted on top of the legitimate keypad. The camera or overlay records your PIN as you enter it.
The camera is one of two components needed for a fraudster to clone your debit or credit card and use it for fraudulent transactions. Find out how a skimmer scam works.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
SHIELD YOUR PIN
Always use your hand to shield your P.I.N. as you enter it.
If the fraudsters do not have your P.I.N. they cannot use your cloned card in P.I.N. based transactions.
