Don't get taken by an ATM skimmer

Do you know about ATM skimmers? Devices like this are used to record all the account information stored electronically on a card's magnetic strip.

By some estimates, skimming schemes in the U.S. are responsible for $350,000 in monetary loses everyday.

Police say you should always use an ATM that's under surveillance or inside a bank's lobby because it's less likely they'll be tampered with. Also, skimming devices stick out an extra couple of inches, so if it looks suspicious it probably is.
