    All try to use a in store machine and not a hole in the wall, skimming devices are getting smarter in respect to wifi devices working in conjunction with mini cam but the best bit of advice is to always try to avoid hole in wall as not very many in store are skimmed , four parts to look at are the card reader the key pad the speaker if fitted and flap that protects the cash outlet...........give the card reader a good old pull and if it comes of it's a clone.The key pad looks identical so extra vision must be taken at this point just try getting your nails under and tug as this will only be fitted with tape whereas the real one is securely fitted. The speaker is were they fit the camera so any damage to it don't use ....finally the cash flap, if it don't work and your cash don't come out try to lift yourself as a strong double sided tape is used on the inside so when your cash is dispensed it simply sticks to it you walk away and the person behind is the guy who will lift and take your hard earned cash but please report all to the police.

    Prevention is often worth a ton of cure. According to the Federal Trade Commission, one of the first-line defenses against credit card fraud, especially in case of credit card theft, is to safeguard the physical card itself. If a card is lost or stolen, report the loss immediately. You can visit this page to check for more info.
