Credit card skimming is a type of credit card theft where a device is used to steal sensitive information when the card is used in a legitimate transaction. The device is called a skimmer and it reads the customers personal information that was stored on the magnetic strip of the card.
In Trinidad in 2019 persons were charged and convicted with being in possession of fraudulent ATM cards and large sums of cash knowing that the money was the proceeds of fraud and for the purpose of money laundering.
These defendants were non nationals who came to Trinidad armed with 182 fradualent ATM cards. They visited different ATMS and were withdrawing sums of money. They arised the suspicion of security personnel of financial institutions.
Law enforcement became involved and the defendants were detained and brought before the courts.
It seems that there is a large international network of cyber criminals who steal credit card information. At our ports of entry in Trinidad, officials are oftentimes unable to identify the skimming devices as they resemble smart phone accessories.
Persons may be making purchases at your company with fradulent credit cads! Want to know how to protect yourself?
