Too Close to Home.

A new activity for enterprising criminals is becoming more common,
called ‘ATM Skimming’, it requires someone to install a card reader
and camera on the front of an otherwise official ATM. Using the ATM
extras the thief can capture account number and PINs as you access
your account.

Though is sounds easy to spot an ATM with a few optional accessories,
the thieves are [ more clever than you think][1]. [ The UT Police
Department][2] reports skimming activity in at least to areas of
campus.

To protect your account information it is important to not use
isolated ATMs, and to inspect the ATM for any odd looking accessories
before you withdraw money.
