Netizen warns public on ATM Modus

Just don’t talk to strangers” is how a netizen ended his warning on  his story about an ATM modus that he encountered. A security tip that should be added to the warning signs posted in ATM booths/machines.

It only took less than an hour for the culprits to carry out the ATM modus . It was not a usual pick-pocket nor a hold-up incident, but an ATM modus that was clearly planned. Distracting the person withdrawing was the strategy. The victim who succumbs to the diversion ends up holding an ATM card that is not his and all his money withdrawn from his ATM. How did it happen?

Here is his full story of perhaps a very new ATM modus for the strategy is not the one the public has usually heard of.

atmPLEASE READ AND BE AWARE!
This is the picture of the suspect, a girl wearing polka dot blouse (w/ the coordination of BDO & Security Management of Sta.Lucia mall cainta). The incident happened last Friday Aug. 9, 2013 around 12:30 in the afternoon INSIDE the mall. This is what they called Budol-Budol gang.

MODUS>
1. Kasunod mo siya sa line, after mo magtransact ay hahabulin ka niya at sasabihing may lumabas na pera pagkaalis mo sa machine. Iko-convince ka niyang magbalance inquiry kayo pareho, para RAW ma-confirm niyong dalawa kung sino sa inyo ang may-ari.
2. Pipilitin ka niyang i-focus ang atensyon mo run sa perang kusa RAW lumabas sa machine. Bibigyan ka ng doubt na sira ang machine kaya yayayain ka niyang magcheck sa ibang atm booth.
3. During the second transaction nakikipag-usap siya sa iyo nang may malakas na boses kaya mapapatingin ka sa mga taong nagtitinginan na sa inyo UNAWARE na hindi mo pa nakukuha ang card mo dahil naka-focus ka na sa kanya, doon niya gagawin ang mabilis na pagpapalit ng atm card sa bibig ng machine.
4. Kukunin mo ngayon card sa bibig ng machine not knowing na hindi na pala sa iyo ang hawak mo kasi nakatuon ang atensyon mo sa pakikipagusap sa kanya.
5. Lastly, ipipilit na sa kamay mo ang 1k dahil sabi niya paghatian niyo na lang ang pera. At mabilis nang magpapaalam.

TIP: Mas kampante silang mambiktima kapag HOLIDAY. Kasi lahat ng bangko nakasarado. At wala kang matatakbuhan para maipa-block ang account mo. Nawithdraw nilang lahat ang pera in 30 minutes only.

Hindi na mababawi pa ang nawala pero kahit sa paraang ito makatulong ako sa ibang tao na makaka-encounter nito. AKO po yung naka- checkered na nasa harap ng BDO machine. The switching of card happened on BPI booth. At na-confirm po namin sa pakikipag-usap namin sa 2 bangko na WALANG CAMERA mism0 sa harap ng machine kundi pr0ps lang.

JUST DON’T TALK TO STRANGERS.
And please help me SPREAD this…”
