I've noticed that in a lot of written CC transactions now they ask for the 3-digit 'security code' on the back of the card which kinda defeats the whole object? I thought it was designed to deter people who only have the card number/expiry but not the actual card?

I'd had my CC compromised twice. Once was via an insecure website for a very well known and reputable international company when someone used the details to purchase about $7000 worth of domain names and other internet stuff. The other happened a couple of years later when I suddenly discovered I'd bought over $10,000 worth of airline tickets. I have absolutely NO idea how someone in Italy got hold of the details on that occasion. On both occasions the bank covered it. No wonder they charge fees.

Eamonn and Mewing_Ghecko

Here in the UK, we have gangs going around, fixing fake fronts to ATM machines.

They chose petrol stations and supermarkets, which have a car park close by and are quiet.

The fake front, scans the card and a small camera also fitted gets the pin number, these are transmitted to the crook, who is sitting in a car, close by with a laptop.

The card details can be sent anywhere in the world and the card gets cloned and used, before the owner is aware of the scam.

Some gangs have been caught, they were from romania.

It's almost always the merchant that wears it, rather than the bank. Unless the merchant has a signature on a slip (or a pin was used with a physical card) then they cop it.

A lot of the ATMs I've seen on travels show an image on the display screen of what the card slot should look like, as well as other measures to prevent card and pin reading mods. Like everything else, though, these measures are reactive but we've come a long way from pin being encoded on the mag strip in plain text.
