    Bali ATM Thieves Stole Rp 2b With Cloned Cards, Recorded PINs

    Thieves who stole money from bank accounts through ATMs in Bali used the infamous technique of installing a fake slot on the machine to dupe customers, the National Police said on Thursday.

    “The perpetrators installed a device with a card slot in the ATM. Users will not realize that the slot is a fake, and whenever they swipe their card in this slot the device will automatically copy and capture the card’s data,” chief of detectives Comr. Gen. Ito Sumardi said. The thieves also installed a mini camera to record customers’ PINs as they punched them in.

    With the card data, they cloned ATM cards and used them to withdraw funds from bank customers’ accounts.

    “So far this has only happened in ATMs at banks in Bali. There is also a Jakarta resident who reported Rp 70 million [$7,560] was stolen from his account because he went to Seminyak and used an ATM there,” Ito said. “We will work fast to restore public trust in our bank system. We suspect that the perpetrators are still in Bali.”

    Ito added that so far there was no evidence of bank insiders being involved. Bank Indonesia has compiled a list of 200 bank clients whose accounts were tapped for a total loss of Rp 2 billion, said Jeffrey Kairupan, director of the central bank’s Denpasar branch.

    Jeffrey said customers at PT Bank Central Asia, PT Bank Negara Indonesia, PT Bank Mandiri, PT Bank Permata, PT Bank Internasional Indonesia and PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia had reported thefts. “Most of them were BCA clients — 55 cases in all,” he said.

    Bali Police Chief Sr. Comr. Gede Alit Widana said capture devices had been seized from ATMs in Denpasar and Kuta. He said the method suggested the thieves were part of a syndicate. Potential links to known criminal groups in Australia, Russia and Canada were being investigated.

    Jeffrey asked the public not to panic because the banks had taken steps to deal with the thefts. “We will give full assistance until the problem is solved,” he said.

    Top Tips for Avoiding ATM Skimmers

    ATM skimming technology is readily available and easy for criminals to use, said Dan DeFilippi, an expert on identity theft.

    "If you can plug a camera into a computer and plug a VCR into a TV, you can do ATM skimming. That's as simple as it is. You can buy the hardware--all you have to do is plug it in,” said DeFelippi told the US-based news website 13wham.com.

    Thieves attach skimmers to ATM's to get people's credit and bank card information. DeFelippi knows what he's talking about, because he used to run scams like this himself.

    After his arrest in 2003, DeFelippi agreed to help the US Secret Service infiltrate internet networks devoted to identity theft.

    DeFelippi said people are often distracted at ATM’s and don't look closely at the machine they're using. Thieves exploit this fact. He offered these tips to avoid getting scammed.

    1. Look for the flashing LED light where you insert the card. A skimmer sometimes covers that light.

    2. Be wary of attached brochure containers which can hide cameras to record your PIN number.

    3. Pick an ATM close to home and use it regularly so you become familiar with how it operates and can better note changes.

    4. Drive-through ATM’s are good targets for thieves because drivers feel rushed by people behind them and don't always pay attention.

    5. The safest ATMs are inside a bank or store where people are around.

    6. Be suspicious anytime the ATM takes your card and PIN but then says it is out of order and can't give you money.

    More importantly, why not install your own skimmer and pinpad?
