Definitions for "Skimming"
Skimming involves the unauthorised copying of electronic data from credit or debit cards. Although it is often done by dishonest shop assistants, in recent years has involved more sophistocated electronic devices. This can include stealing credit card data by swiping the card through a machine (which may be concealed within a valid ATM) that reads information on the magnetic strip. These details are then used to make counterfeit cards, which are often sold on.
The most prevalent form of counterfeit fraud whereby a genuine card's magnetic stripe details are electronically copied and put onto another card.
Skimming happens when someone, often a retail store employee, uses his or her own electronic device to swipe your card and gather its account information. This sometimes happens when the employee is already holding your card during a purchase at a register.
