Charge Card Skimmers Ilusion

Money illusions are everywhere, and the identity thieves are experts at creating an illusion to obtain your credit card numbers and pin numbers. Earlier this year we made our readers aware of the debit and credit card readers that are fraudulently placed at your local ATM machines and other locations.

Recently another incident of this form of identity theft has occurred and was reported on the Money Safe on Q13 Fox News. The readers are known as "skimmers", and unfortunately are relatively easy for the crooks to obtain. But, if you're armed with the knowledge of what to look for then you will be able to protect yourself from potential fraud.

Skimmers and credit debit card readers will possibly show up at your local ATM or other location! Will you be aware of what they are? If not, you may become a victim of an illusion - the illusion created to make you think they are legit when they are in fact not. Stay safe and learn about the card skimmers.
