Coming soon to a Walmart in your area …

There’s a whole new generation of credit card skimmers at Walmart et al that are surprisingly good…

Can you spot the fake… from the real one?



**Credit Card Skimmer**

**I tried 4 different ways to import the picture of the fake vs real CC scanner... but Mexconnect's current text editor does not allow me to import the picture...

Because the thieves have to snap the skimmer mask over-top the real credit card reader, the fake ~skimmer~ is a little wider, and a little taller.

Thanks to Krebs on Security for their ongoing excellent work…

The ATM machine pictured is manufactured by NCR and is widely used in Mexican banks, Bancomer, in particular. Here's a related article from the Daily Mail, a British online tabloid:

Security expert spots a cash machine skimmer on an ATM and rips it off with his bare hands

And here's a photo:
