When the skimming device is removed, you can see the adhesive tape and the hardware used to capture card information from the magnetic strip.

Always conduct a physical inspection when you use the ATM. Pull or tug on the card reader, cash dispenser frame and key pad. Just because it looks normal doesn’t mean it is.
