      It does more then steal the information. The Skimmer in some cases is able to program another card with the same information as the card it stole it from. In other words it steals and records your information giving the person who owns it the ability to make cards for your account.

      So they could take an outdated or expired card and make it into a copy of your card but it has their info on it or who ever most people at stored don’t check anyway.

    would be helpful if these updates had a photo of what the skimmer device looks like. Might be helpful to know what to watch for before you slide your debit card through it.
