Tourist Finds An ATM Skimmer Whilst On Vacation

Security expert Benjamin Tedesco found an illegal cash skimmer on an ATM machine whilst on holiday in Vienna, Austria.

The skimmer was located on the ATM machine near St. Stephen’s Cathedral, based in the Austrian capital.

His video of the incident has already amassed two million views.

Tedesco noticed glue around the skimmer which instantly determines that it’s fake.

To prove it, he pulls off the skimmer and shows us how identical the real and fake machines are.

He then speaks to an ATM user to warn her about the danger of the fake skimmer as soon as she goes to insert her card.

Tedesco said, ‘While on vacation with my family in Vienna, Austria, I went to grab some cash from an ATM.

‘Being security paranoid, I repeated my typical habit of checking the card reader with my hand as I have 100s of times…; today’s the day when my security awareness paid off’.

‘In addition to the magnetic strip reader, it has a battery (the large silver object on the right), some sort of switch (the small silver object in the middle with the small black tab sticking out of it), and of course the control board with the 4 pin connector (the large green board to the left).’

He added, ‘I have since notified the Vienna Police Department regarding this discovery’.

Tedesco noticed something else suspicious after watching a spoof of his video by Ali Rahmoun. It shows a missing grey slip that could have been a camera.

The camera was positioned over the keyboard so that PIN codes can be recorded. Whilst it was in Tedesco’s video, it was removed in Rahmoun’s.
