25. Skimming is when thieves are able to add to or modify a point of sale device in order to retrieve the data imbedded in the magnetic strip located on the back of a credit or debit card. The thieves place a cover facsimile over the point of a sale device that contains a magnetic strip reader head and whenever the device is used the thieves are able to record the data from the card. The thieves then record the data onto a fake card magnetic strip and they are able to access your account and or withdraw funds from your account.
