Last week, I was visiting a major manufacturer of ATM and credit card readers, like the ones at convenience stores, gas stations, etc. What thieves are starting to do is to break into a stores and stealing the card readers. In the card readers is a chip that stores all customer credit card info for about a year. These chips are taken out of the card reader in which the information is extracted! I understand that this is a growing problem and is the easiest way for criminals to get credit card information that can be sold. The above would want to make me change my account numbers twice a year!
