Slide 1: ATM THEFTS In our first slide you see an individual who apparently is making a bank transaction at the ATM. Slide 2: What he really is doing is placing a trap in the ATM machine to “capture” the next user card. Placing the trap Slide 3: Lookout Warning Altering the ATMs is a risky business, these individuals work in teams. The lookout warns of any possible eye witnesses / or of the next potential victim. Slide 4: Here we see the next client using the ATM, after the trap has been set. He inserts his card and begins his transaction. The Victim Slide 5: Springing the TRAP The ATM card is confiscated, and the customer is confused, asking himself, Why has my card been confiscated? However, here we see the cavalry coming to help, (HELP!!!). Slide 6: Honest,Samaritan Offering HELP Here we see the thief pretending to help. What he is really doing is trying to gain the “customers” PIN, now that he has captured his card. Slide 7: Gaining access to the PIN The good Samaritan convinces the “Customer” He can recover the card, if he presses his PIN at the same time the Samaritan press “cancel” and “enter”. Slide 8: Situation Hopeless, “They Leave” After several attempts the “customer” is convinced his card has been confiscated. The “customer” and the Samaritan leave the ATM. Slide 9: Recovering the CARD Satisfied the area is clear, the thief returns to recover the confiscated card from his trap. He not only has the card, he also has the PIN the “customer” provided unknowingly. Slide 10: The Escape In possession of the card and the PIN he leaves the ATM with R4,000 from the “Customers” account. Slide 11: THE TRAP The trap is made up of XRAY film, which is the preferred material by thieves; Simply because of the black color which is similar in appearance to the slot on the card reader. Slide 12: Placing the TRAP The trap is then inserted into the ATM slot. Care is taken not to insert the entire film into the slot, the ends are folded and contain glue strips for better adhesion to the inner and outer surface of the slots. Slide 13: INVISIBLE Once the ends are firmly glued and fixed to the slot, it is almost impossible to detect by unsuspecting clients. Slide 14: How is your card confiscated? Slits are cut into both sides of the trap, This prevents your card being returned prior to completing your transaction. Slide 15: Retrieval of Confiscated card. As soon as the “Customer” has gone, and they have your PIN , The thief can remove the glued trap, by grasping the folded tips, he simply pulls the trap out that has retained your card.. Slide 16: RECOMENDATIONS. 1.-Once your card has been confiscated, observe the ATM slot and the card reader for any signs of tampering. Should you see the film tips glued to the slot, unglue, pull the trap out and recover your card. 2.- Report IMMEDIATELY to the BanK. Slide 17: Send this message to friends and family immediately.
