There are a lot of guys that I know of who do this form of "bank fraud". Yet, I really don't know much about it. Basically, from my knowledge, it has to do heavily with ATM's and wire transfers. Anytime anyone gets "put on" to the lick, they give the guy who runs the scam their ATM card and in a few days to a week, they get their card back and a few stacks. I think they might also have to go pull the money out themselves at an ATM ("they" being the cardholder, not the scammer). Now the card holder isn't the one being scammed, they are in on it, they are kind of just a vehicle for the scammer, like a drop house I suppose (for lack of a better analogy). What is happening on the scammer's end, to the best of my knowledge, is basically that he takes time to find like old, inactive bank accounts (like that of an old person) and wire like an average of $30,000 at a time out of them.
Now the majority of the people who I know of that are actively doing this are ghetto black dudes with no computer savvy. They are very secretive and whatnot about this hustle and really don't want to let new guys in too much and definitely never teach anyone how to hit the lick on their own.
My question, and the point of this post, is how do they do this? What, more importantly, are they doing? How does this work? Does anyone on Zoklet have any idea of what may be going on here and how I might learn for myself how to do this?
I'm wondering if you could configure the magstrip reader to send a text to a prepaid phone so you wouldn't have to retrieve the device.
OP is on Zoklet.
I'm sure they were paid to install them by the people getting the numbers wirelessly. They know ATM's are under surveillance there not dumb.
This guide is incredibly old and will no longer work. It was clearly written by someone with no skimming experience as well. Combined with the fact that v0x or whoever you claim wrote the guide is not the original author.
Don't try that at home kids.
If you have better information we'd all love to know.
Thanks for that lol, you saved me a lot of typing.
The mini123 wouldn't work period. First of all, it's too large. Also the magnetic head is far too large.
Even if you were able to buy a magnetic head, along with the MSR123EX and successfully molded a skimmer. It would have to be a dip and swipe type, not a normal front bezel type. It has to be the kind where you insert the card and pull it out quickly, similar to a gas station card reader, because the msr123ex can't read interrupted swipes.
A little research and you would realize this.
Brutus seems to be trustable on info, even if he has been accused of ripping. We'll see what happens with the accusations and shoudersurfer within the next week. IMO, at least brutus posts and contributes, whereas shouldersurfer just screams like a skid... Anyway, all of this is just one more reason why I don't work with other carders. Remember everyone: the best partner is no partner at all.
