It pays to be vigilant at cash points

It pays to be vigilant at cash points

Benjamin Tedesco from Advanced Consulting Services at Carbon Black (US security company) was on holiday when he found a card skimming device on a Samsung Cash Machine outside St. Steven’s cathedral in Vienna, Austria.

The video below shows how perfect this unit was and how easy it would have been for others not to realise their cards were getting skimmed.

Always check the card machine to ensure nothing has been placed over/near the unit.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
