Skimming… not the redbox terminals. What's next?

In preparing for a presentation I am making at University of Connecticut next week, I was searching the Internet tonight for images of credit and debit card skimming.

I came across a frightening image.  It was a picture of a redbox movie rental station, focused in on the credit card swipe area.

Much to my surprise I learned the folks stealing our credit card and debit card information have been installing their card skimming devices onto redbox stations.

If you are a redbox user like myself, you need to start watching for signs to ensure that a skimming device has not been added to the redbox station you use.

Here is the URL to the redbox image to help show you what to look for:
