ATM skimmers in Balluta (Malta)

Be careful when you’re withdrawing from ATMs. Authorities have just found an ATM Skimmer in HSBC Balluta. They had already found one a few weeks ago in BOV Paceville. This is attached to the ATM and it reads the credit card details.

Probably there is also a pinhole camera attached by the side of the ATM which will record your pin number as you type it as well.

HSBC ATM s have anti skimming technology embedded in them.

glad to hear that! but still clients would be still at risk since most of the skimmer kits come with a pinhole camera. if the pin code is revealed and the card is stolen, cash would be still potentially taken.
