  1. Why you think its fake? This method is also very popular in UK and in fact throughout Europe. However, I would think russian gangs might have something to do with that as well 🙂

      • Yes AMRO is Dutch, but Banco Real is a Brazilian institution (bought by AMRO) and I don’t think they have offices elsewhere neither if a “general” Banco Real card would work in any AMRO. What it’s doing in Russia is still a mistery.

        Although the real “brand” of the card is VISA, they just have the bank’s name in there more as an advertising for the banks than anything, except when you can use the card with the associated bank account, some banks do that as well.

        • That card is definitely fake… sure Banco Real is Brazilian and owned by the Dutch ABN Amro, but it’s not how a real ABN Amro VISA card would look like. I know because I have one.

    • In Canada we now have special devices that make mounting card readers nearly impossible. The machines accept the card at a very slow speed to prevent any other devices from reading the strip.

      Other then that ATM fraud is still happens here, often through online banking or point of sale terminals at places like petrol stations.

    • It doesn’t matter in which order the numbers on the buttons are, it’s about which buttons got pressed and thát information will be used.

  2. It’s a common scam also in Italy, usually made by romanians: they’re expert in this “business”!
    Sometimes they are able to install some big fake bankomats to cheat the people! It’s like a movie’s gag, but I swear it’s real!

  3. It’s not a fake. I’ve got my card cancelled after i used cash-machine with this device. No money was stolen though :). Guess they was aiming for bigger fish.

  4. Copying card information via ATM add-ons for fraud is common world-wide. I know of no reason to think that it’s mostly Romanians doing it.

    Brazilian card indicates it’s real. If someone wanted to make a fake-up of something like that, they’d use a Russian card to go along with all that Cyrillic writing. It’s real, for some value of `real’.

    But what we see is a modification of the keyboard, one assumes to capture the PIN. Where’s the piggy-back mag strip reader?

    As for mixing up the 2 and 6 – well, that might be an attempt by the `pranksters’ to avoid trouble if they’re traced. Maybe they’d claim that no-one could use this device in an illegal fashion because it’s so obviously wrong? Stranger thoughts have passed through heads.

  5. These have been around in the US for years.

    They also have little taps that can be put inside the machines and record the data by induction from the signal wires.

    They’ve even had guys who built entire fake ATM machines stocked with real $20 bills and placed them in high end mall food courts to collect rich people’s bank info for $20 a pop.

  11. The CARD is definattely REAL. I have mine in hands and just compared..
    ABN AMRO is DUTCH, bought REAL BANK (Banco Real) and last year Spanish Santander bought the Abn Amro Real Bank, in Brazil.

    Russian are well know for hacking Brazilian systems… I wouldn’t be surprised if this very card was shipped from Brazil to “mother-russia” by some croc…
