Please be advised that on 3rd May 2012 The Jersey Authorities intercepted two Eastern European Nationals who had in their possession equipment known as 'False Fronts' and' Camera Bars' that fit over the card slots on cash dispensers. The 'false fronts' digitally record the details stored in the magnetic strips of debit and credit cards that are passed through it, the camera bars record the PIN numbers associated with the cards. It is of consideration that Organised Crime Groups may target the Channel Islands and pose a potential risk to your customers. An extra degree of vigilance may be called for.
