My wife's uncle stopped at a WaWa in Monroe on Applegarth Rd two days ago and this morning his account was drained of $1700. He reported it to the Monroe police and they said he was the 5th person today to file a report. They said there is an ATM scam ring installing very good card skimmers at WaWa ATMs in Central Jersey. They are doing it at WaWa because of the high usage they believe. No fees at these PNC Bank ATMs. The skimmers are put in place and run for a day or maybe two then removed...then they move onto the next location. For those that don't know what a skimmer is, its an electronic device attached to the card reader and usually an overlay on the key pad. The card data and key presses are logged in flash memory in the skimmer. Bad guys pick em up and make cards or execute transactions. There are lots of variations of these devices. Here's a good article on them. Brian Krebs is a good cyber security info source. http://krebsonsecurity.com/all-about-skimmers/ These scum wads also place them at bank atms on weekends after closing and pick em up before the bank opens so bank employees don't see them. So be alert at ATMs. You'll probably get the money back but it sucks when your mortgage check or ACH bounces.
