    I've always been aware of my surroundings when going up to the atm machines at banks. I noticed that there are more and more people just standing on the side close by waiting for consumers to use the atm machine. As soon as the consumer finishes using the atm machine and leaves. The suspicious onlooker runs to the atm machine and does something. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with stealing personal information. Maybe the person is retrieving their device?

    Why don't banks invest in this technology so that we don't have to? Who is stealing from whom?

    Note the scammers can detect your phone if you use the app and may compromise your device! It's in the small details at the end of the app description! Seems not that great then!

    A bluetooth scanner should be installed in every ATM, do that it detects it and responds before someone uses it.

    This is why we need NFC payments COMBINED with 24/7 dual camera surveillance.

    I didn’t know the skimmers have reduced in size so much that they can be inserted into the swipe part of the machine. Great report Alfred!
