We guarantee you’ll be shocked when you see how easily these thieves can steal your personal information.
If you’re a frequent credit card user, you are probably pretty aware of who you give your information to. You also likely take precautions to make sure it doesn’t end up in the wrong hands. But what happens when sliding your card at a convenience store means handing over a wealth of personal data?
A security video recently captured a few thieves installing a credit card skimmer on a machine in seconds. They slipped the cover on the credit card scanner while another “shopper” distracted the cashier, granting them access to all the information of those who slid their cards.
Fortunately, the shocking heist was captured by a security camera.
The thieves were captured fairly quickly after the incident, but this doesn’t mean others aren’t out there getting away with this.
It’s so important to be aware of your bank account and who has your credit card information. Please be a hero to your friends and family and make sure they are aware of this kind of theft.
After you watch the following video, PLEASE SHARE it with those who might be unaware!
