What is skimming?
Skimming of payment cards is a type of fraud which the offenders attempt to get data from a payment card and a PIN code. Afterwards they create a card duplicate and use it mostly for ATM cash withdrawals abroad.
Offenders usually obtain payment card data by installing special devices especially on ATMs.
Fraudulent ATM example
Hidden payment card magnetic strip reader
Hidden camera or false keyboard recording PIN
Recording payment card data
Recording payment card data during the execution of a payment with a vendor or in a restaurant is an alternative of skimming on ATMs. Such data (without using PIN) serve for online shopping.
When introducing modern technologies we do our best to keep your money protected. To increase the security of access to money via payment cards, we have introduced several measures applying to login to cards, ATMs or Internet BankingTB.
Chip & PIN Technology
Chip & PIN represents a safer form of payment and was developed to protect card holders as well as participants in the payment chain. The basic difference is in the so-called smart chip, which provides a more advanced form of preserving information than the magnetic stripe.
We are constantly monitoring your card transactions, protecting you at the same time. You might get a phone call from a bank specialist who will verify some of your card payments in order to protect your money.
Thanks to our mechanical barriers, the Tatra banka ATMs are safer. The innovations include controlled movement of the card during inserting and ejecting, preventing the reading of the payment card magnetic stripe data by any unauthorized device.
The Card and ReaderTB
The Card and ReaderTB is a unique tool intended for safer login and when confirming payments in Internet BankingTB. It consists of a normal payment card with a chip and the chip payment card reader. If you are interested in a smaller reader device, you can ask for the mini-reader. It is used in Internet BankingTB the same way as the standard reader device. The mini-reader costs €8.
