PIN entry devices

Fraud stemming from PIN entry devices happens when fraudsters modify genuine PIN entry devices to record card details.

The modified device records a cards details when the victim puts their card into a cash point that has been tampered with.

The card details can then be used to fraudulently obtain money or goods. The card details may be sent abroad to be used in countries that don’t use Chip and PIN.

If fraud has been committed, report it to Action Fraud.
