In a little over a decade, ATM skimmers have gone from urban myth to a wildly complex, ever-evolving suite of technologies that has the potential to be the worst nightmare of anyone with a bank account.
Using an automated teller machine is inherently risky. You stand there, your back turned, signaling to everyone around that you're about to have a wad of tens in your pocket. If you're lucky, there's a security guard on duty. But usually it's just you and whoever is lurking in that little convex mirror.
