What is Debit/Credit Card Skimming?

Card skimming is the illegal copying of information from the magnetic stripe of an ATM Debit Card, a Cash Card or a Credit Card.
Card skimming can be perpetrated in retail merchants, restaurants, gas stations or anywhere that we use our BDO ATM Debit or Cash Card to pay for a product or service. A syndicate may recruit a staff to skim customers’ card details using a small, hand-held skimming device.
Card skimming may also be perpetrated at ATM by using a dummy card slot attached to the legitimate card slot of the machine capturing card data, and a pinhole camera that records keying-in of PIN.
