BEWARE OF BANK CARD CLONING EQUIPMENT AT ATM MACHINES 

There have been no recent reports of cloning of bank cards at ATM machines in Ecuador. However, you need to be alert in Ecuador as it has been reported previously. Earlier this week, two Colombians were arrested in Chile for placing a cloning device at ATMS in Santiago, Chile. The criminals install a device on the ATM and makes it difficult to notice any difference in the real machine. While making your transaction the covert machine makes a copy of the information and a micro camera records your pin number. They retrieve the equipment and then with the information, clone a card and then start withdrawing cash. The two Colombians are in Chile illegally and affected hundreds of cards.
