Fraudsters misused ATMs, this time eBanka

Last week, some eBanka clients were unpleasantly surprised. They also included in the transaction entry those they did not carry out themselves. They became fraudsters who chose eBanka ATMs for the day. They placed special tees or skimmers.

In most cases, this flow is accompanied by a miniature PIN camera. Obtaining information can fraudulently produce a counterfeit card, with which the client can exclude.

Last week, eBanka became the territory of the described fraudulent stream. “We recorded an attempt at skimming at two eBanka ATMs in Prague,” Tom Kofro told in a press release. Specifically, on Saturday, June 2, a skimming device was discovered at an eBanka ATM on Karlov nmst and in Jugoslvsk Street.

According to Kofron, the bank took precautionary measures every night to minimize the impact of skimming. Zazen was removed from both ATMs and the bank informed clients who had withdrawn pensions at a critical time. The bank is connected with several clients who could become involved in the flow and their case in the standard way. In addition to new damaged payment cards, they will also receive an unjustifiably selected pension.

Should clients of other banks also appear among the victims, eBanka is going to inform them through their home financial situation.
