ATM Robbery Technique - Don't Be a Victim

This set of pictures illustrates how you can be conned into thinking your card has been 'eaten" by the bank machine with the use of a bit of film strip.  A "helpful" stranger comes along and convinces you that if you enter your PIN at the same instant he presses cancel, then your card will be returned.  You try this a few times while the stranger memorizes the PIN.  You give up and walk away, the stranger retrieves the card.


  1. OR, you can sit at home and have all your personal information hacked without even having an ATM card.

    This place ain't safe for man nor beast anymore.

  2. You are just Joe Btfsplk's sister.

  3. Just one of the many reasons I don't use such cards and try and remain an enigma on the net. And you thought I was just paranoid.

  4. You are not paranoid if they really are out to get you.

  5. I'm not paranoid. I just don't like those characters. They are out to get, not so much me, but mine. As in everything I have.

  6. I followed you from Rob-bear's blog. I was curious.
    That is your passport picture? OMG
    Yes, it was easier with money. They just conked you over the head but only got a few bucks.:)
