Card Skimming

Card skimming is a type of credit card fraud in which criminals use a small, inconspicuous device known as a skimmer to steal card information from unsuspecting victims. Skimmers are typically placed on legitimate card-reading devices, such as ATMs, gas station pumps, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, and other payment systems. When a person inserts their credit or debit card into the compromised machine, the skimmer captures the card’s magnetic stripe data, including the card number and sometimes the cardholder’s name and other details.
