This is a fairly common credit card crime. Criminals use a hand-held device called a skimmer, which looks like an ATM keyboard. This machine reads the card, keeps the information for later use. The information is sold to others in the form of counterfeit cards. Credit skimming is costing credit card users and card issuers millions in phony charges.
