Why is it that people don't think that they will eventually be caught? There is no benefit to steal from someone else.

Sooner or later this idiot was going to get caught. Too bad he already had spent over $10,500.

I was thinking the exact same thing. In fact, why do they even make them? Posession of one should be a felony.

SKIMMERS ARE ON EVERY ATM,CREDIT CARD SCANNERS YOU NAME IT IF THE CARD HAS THE BLACK MAG STRIP IT'S A SKIMMER THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT THEY ARE NOT USED FOR ILLEGAL PURPOSES, AND I AGREE IF AN INDIVIDUAL IS CAUGHT WITH A CARD SKIMMER THERE SHOULD BE JAIL TIME AS WITH BURGLARY TOOLS
