How Can I Prevent Debit Card Skimming Fraud?


Skimming happens when scammers install a device and camera on at an ATM, point of sale or fuel pump terminal to capture card data and PIN – then they make a fake card with this data

Best to use a terminal that is supervised or secured at all times

If you must use an unsupervised terminal, here are some tips:

  • pick one in the line of sight of attendants/cashier
  • scan for any sign of tampering – loose, damaged, scratched pieces
  • cover the keypad when entering PIN
