ATMs for sale and Skimming
I started looking on E-bay and found plenty of new and used ATMs ranging from $500-2500 but quickly determined I didn’t want to pay $300 for shipping.
Next was Craigslist, where anyone can rent out an apartment, buy a boat, get an erotic massage and buy an ATM.
I quickly found an ad from a bar north of Boston. They were selling pool tables, Budweiser neon signs and an ATM.
After my hacker played with the manual, got it working and determined it was worth the financial risk, we loaded it on my trailer, paid $750 (down from a grand) and brought it home and put it in my garage.
My hacker comes over to my garage, manual in hand, all giggly, like hackers sometimes do and says “Watch this”.
He punches the master codes to access the machines data on a device called an eprom and hundreds of credit and debit card numbers just start falling all over the floor.
A few days later a TV producer friend of mine came over and we devised an evil plan to scam millions of $$ from unsuspecting suckers and then spend the rest of our lives hopping from island to island and buying a villa in Sicily.
But my wife said “NO”.
