Consumer safety: spotting an ATM skimmer.

Here at the HTN, it's not all about grabbing any freebies and hot deals you see - being wise with your money also means not allowing stupid dumb thief jerks to take it from you. So, check out this PDF presentation on how to spot ATM skimmers, aka card-reader/videocamera devices that capture and wirelessly transmit your account and PIN number info to bad people so they can steal your money.

If you don't feel like being vigilant and/or pounding on your ATM every time you get cash, just remember to cover your PIN-entering hand with your other hand when you're making a withdrawal. Foiled!
