Life: Protect Your Money/Identity


PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT! Please share this with your friends, family, and loved ones.

People are using these fake keypads in different countries since 2011 till this day. Crooks are now more technologically advanced and use a Card Skimmer – An illegal electronic device that can capture all of the personal information (Name, Expiration date, 3 digit verification pin, etc.) from a credit/debit card and ATM card. Only a few people are aware of this so always double-check. Here are the other signs to know if it’s fake:

1) The red, yellow and green bars or lines/buttons on the right-side are usually longer than the regular ones (cancel, clear, and accept).
2) There are usually no marks on the left and right of the Zero (0) button.
3) Try to raise the ATM Keypad – MAJOR sign that it’s fake.

See photo for further details and comparison.

If you encounter this, immediately report it to your bank to avoid further scamming.
