These two guys show us just how easily and quickly someone can install a credit card skimming machine onto a credit card processor at your local supermarket or gas station. The two men each seem to have their own job, as one distracts one of the workers down to the right side of the counter and blocking the view of the credit card machine with 2 small bags of chips, whereas the other guy installs the credit card skimmer in a matter of seconds.

This video was captured in Miami Beach, Florida on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 at 9:30 PM. The incident happened at a local Chevron gas station. The next morning the clerk notified the police after the skimmer came loose. How convenient that they pay cash for their purchase! ;)

This just goes to show you that you might want to double check the credit card machine you use each time to make sure nothing's falling off of it or looks odd before you use it.

Also to note, these credit card skimming machines are not able to steal the information with credit cards that have EMV chips, so if you have a newer card that has one of these chips you should be safe from thieves like this. That is until a new machine comes along to steal the information from newer credit cards.
