Using Automated Teller Machines has become commonplace among Americans today. But many people aren’t aware of an ATM scam that could end up costing them big-time.

They also install a tiny pinhole camera somewhere on the ATM — for example, on a disguised pamphlet holder — which records PINs as they are entered by unsuspecting victims.
