We received an email from RedBox today about some 'card skimmer's they found on their vending machines in Arizona. Some crook installed a device that reads the credit card information. It is sometimes hard to notice unless you are looking for it. I heard it happens in ATM machines too. The ones in ATM machines are barely noticeable. They said that when you insert your ATM card, you'd think that the machine is not working after you punch in your password/number. But what you don't know is that all the information has already been encrypted in the skimmer device and there is a camera that recorded your password.
If you find out that your credit card has been compromised, it is a good idea to close that account and open a new credit card. To get more information about rewardcredit cards, the internet can be a useful source. When searching for a gas cards or even instant approval credit cards, the web can give you many different view points.
So next time you use any ATM machine, check the card reader first. Make sure that there are no foreign objects in or on it. Cover the keypad when you are entering your password. It is better to be safe than sorry.
