Turns out taking money out of the transaction hasn’t stopped thieves from stealing it. And this is just one example of it being done.
The perpetrator appears to make a simple point of purchase transaction. In reality he’s inserting a card skimmer into the credit/debit terminal. That device than collects the data from the card that’s inserted. The same thing is done at terminals throughout Regina.
Police are reminding businesses to check machines on a regular basis. Tight fitting cards are a tip off.
