dd had a nice post today by halvar on an atm fraud:
according to a nathan landon who provided with more details:
they showed it on the news here in virginia. they have security camera footage of the guy who they believe is the perpetrator trying to pull out $250 and getting $1000. he did this twice apparently. he doesn’t look like the “engineer” type. they reported that he was able to turn on the glitch through a series of entered numbers. doubtful he knew what he was doing otherwise he could have turned it off between attempts.
it took 9 days apparently to catch the error when a good samaritan noticed that they got more than they asked for and reported it.
if this is real, it sure is interesting how it came to be.
