Hi,

A complex issue, people will pay thousands of bucks if they know they'll
come out of it all the winner. Even if people working inside the banks
weren't envolved, and I don't think they are, remember there are always
people wanting to find a way of beating any system. 

I stopped using such machines years ago, before such scams even were in
place, because I saw this coming, 

Brent.

skimming be warned becoming a big problem.


Hi from Steven.

What disturbs me is these banks make billions but still can't find  
ways of stopping this from happening.

I will be careful what I say here, but one has to at least consider  
the unlikely possibility that some of this is well "inside knowledge"  
not that I am openly accusing the banks here.

Steven.
