Hacked ATMs

Gizmodo reports Attack of the Card Skimmers: It's Happening Right Here, Right Now. These are ATMs that have been hacked with custom fit hardware to read your card and see you type in your PIN. Ugh.

I remember a few years back they would put a completely false from on ATMs, which would eat your card and record your pin. After collecting a bunch they would take off the false front, get the cards (and the pins) and empty the accounts using the real ATM.
