A new anti-skimming Guide is being provided to convenience stores and ATM distributors to help deter illegal skimming.
A new ATM Skimming Detection & Deterrence Guide from Conexxus and the National ATM Council (NAC) will soon be available for use at convenience stores throughout the U.S.
The National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) noted that this new Guide will help U.S. convenience stores and retail ATM providers to ensure that they are proving safe and secure transactions at in-store ATMs. The Guide has been introduced in response to the heightened card skimming risk that has emerged from the current implementation of EMV at U.S. ATMs.
According to industry survey results from NAC, illegal skimming of card data has been “virtually non-existent” at retail ATMS for the past 20 years, as these ATMS are usually under constant live surveillance. According to the report from NACS, this new anti-skimming Guide will help convenience stores and ATM providers to ensure that illegal skimming at their ATMs remains “virtually non-existent.”
The distribution of the new anti-skimming Guide is being coordinated by Conexxus and NAC. The Guide is being distributed to convenience stores and ATM providers across the U.S. for immediate use in detecting and deterring card skimming.
