Would You Have Spotted the Fraud? Card Skimmers how to detect them.

Krebsonsecurity.com has some nice pictures of a very sophisticated card skimmer used at a Citibank ATM in Woodland Hills, Calif. At first look it is very hard to notice that the skimmer is present. If you know what you are looking for it still might not be obvious. The criminal are getting very good at mimicking what ATMs look like and the hardware used in the skimmers are getting smaller and harder to detect. I personally avoid ATMs because of these little devices but when traveling it is very hard not to use one if you are in need of cash. I suggest you take a look at the pictures carefully and be mindful when using the ATM for such skimmers.

Torchlight Retail box availabe at Amazon.com

Here is the link to the game. I love this game. The best $20 I have ever spent. This is the best game I have played in a long time. I can start it up and play for 30 mins and come back the next day and play for an hour and just enjoy playing it. I beat the game in 16 hrs 4 hours short of the 20 hour game time it totes but I am good at hack and slash and I knew a lot about the game going into it. Do not miss this game.
