social media

If your card gets stuck in the ATM while withdrawing cash, then be careful, because one mistake there can lead to a big fraud. A recent report has revealed a new ATM scam devised by fraudsters.

This scam involves removing the card reader from the ATM, causing the customer's card to get stuck inside the machine when they attempt to use it. Once this happens, the fraudsters offer to help the customer by entering their PIN. When the PIN does not work, they ask the victim to complain to the bank.

Scammers wait for the opportunity-

After the customer leaves, the fraudsters take out the card from the machine and withdraw money from the victim's account. This scam is particularly dangerous, as it undermines the victim's trust in strangers and their willingness to accept help when faced with a difficult situation. ATM users need to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to their bank immediately.

This new technology has come into the market-

Scammers have developed a new technique to cheat people using ATMs. According to the news of Times of India, they removed the card reader from the machine, due to which the customer's card got stuck inside. Scammers offer help by asking for the PIN and then pretend to enter it unsuccessfully. They then take advantage of the opportunity to make the customer lodge a complaint and move away from the ATM. After the customer leaves, the scammers retrieve the card and use it to withdraw money.
