Since June 1, some 400 cases of ATM fraud have occurred in Malaysia, many of them in Kuala Lumpur, where a criminal syndicate uses pinhole cameras and scanners built to look like they’re part of the ATM to gather PINs and magnetic data from unsuspecting customers, then manufactures duplicate cards to obtain cash from the accounts. Check all ATMs for these telltale signs when obtaining cash: a pinhole camera attached to a metal strip on the ceiling of the ATM frame; a box attached to the ATM just below the card-insertion point that appears to be part of the machine and is marked with the initials MPES, an abbreviation for a shared banking network in Malaysia.
