    skimmer which took his card details, cloned them and allowed the
    fraudster to take 550 pounds out of his account. Having tried to explain
    how the fraudsters can hide a camera and card reader around the ATM, he
    decided it would be easier to show one of them after a few drinks down
    the pub. He was a little surprised to find that the machine he chose had
    a card reader and camera in place. These were removed and analysed, we
    believe we have reclaimed about 800 pounds worth of kit. Result:
