Skimmers scam $500,000

A gang of criminals hauled in a half million dollars from ATMs at banks in New York City by attaching a hardware card reader, or skimmer, and video camera to ATMs. According to a report Monday in the N.Y. Daily News, as unsuspecting Sovereign Bank patrons withdrew money from the ATMs, the skimmer recorded their bank information and the camera filmed their PINs. The thieves then counterfeited the cards and hit other ATMs for daily withdrawal maximums. No arrests were reported as of Monday morning. ¡X CAM
