Fraudsters have been busy skimming ATMs since at least the last holiday season, as they have sought to take advantage of magstripe readers before adoption of more-secure EMV chip card-compatible ATMs becomes widespread.

Skimming refers to fraudsters using a device to steal credit or debit card information in an otherwise legitimate card transaction. Skimming devices are often placed on ATMs. When a card is run through a skimmer, the device stores the information. Thieves then use the stolen data to make fraudulent charges either online or with a counterfeit credit card.
