In an article titled 'Crooks Have Your Card and You Don't Even Know It', Elisabeth Leamy reports for ABC News on credit and debit card cloning. She writes: "It's a bonanza for crooks. They used to have to risk going into stores to buy pricey merchandise, which they then sold for cash. Now they can just drain ATMs. Authorities say specialized crews do nothing but hit ATMs, cashing out on behalf of other identity thieves and taking a commission."
