CYBER SPACE - By Sanjay Gade
Now I will tell you how you are victimised in an ATM counter.

I am going to tell you a true story about a hi-tech crime by low profile criminals with bank ATMs. Perhaps you are thinking that I am going to tell you about ATM hacking by using spy cam of skimmer. No, my friends I will not tell you that but I will tell you how the low profile criminals have discovered the vulnerability of bank ATMs, where you take out your ATM card after swiping it in the card reader. I request you to take a careful look at the above picture and you will see three rounded unmarked keys.The criminals are using vulnerabilities of these three keys. Mainly they are using two keys on the both sides of 0 (zero) in the keyboard.

Step 1:- You have entered in the ATM room for withdrawing your money.

Step 2:- You have swiped your ATM card and taken it out from card reader.

Step 3:- You have been asked to put your PIN number.

Step 4:- You have given your PIN number but the monitor is not showing you the cross mark on the screen; it's invisible.

Step 5:- You see that your screen is dark and you are perplexed and think that the ATM machine is not functioning so you come out or someone may request you to come out from there quickly as he is in hurry.

Step 6:- That person is able to withdraw money from there and in the mean time you leave the place.

Step 7:- You find another ATM for your urgent withdrawal and there you find that your balance has been deducted by Rs. 10,000 or 20,000.

Now you will be surprised and will contact your bank and they will tell you that you withdrew this amount as the system was showing a successful transaction and bank ATM authority has checked their physical balance, which also shows a successful withdrawal.

Now what will you do?

You will go to the police station and the police will not believe it as most of the police personnel are not aware of this crime.

So what should you do to remain cautious for saving your own hard earned money. If this situation (Steps 4 and 5) comes to you in any ATM counter, don't come out of that room (ATM counter); stay there for at least 10 minutes as your session is still pending otherwise the miscreants will utilize your session and withdraw money from your account. So, be cautious!
