You Can Buy Used ATMs On Craigslist

Here’s a new twist on an old scam, ATMs for sale on Craigslist are being bought and used by crooks in a variety of ways (none of them good). A data security expert in Boston demonstrated this vulnerability.

After searching Craigslist for a seller, he found a bar owner looking to liquidate assets. He paid $750 for the ATM, and after a hacker friend looked over the accompanying manual, he was able to get 1,000 account numbers to print out.
