ATM anti-theft devices to be installed in UAE

June 14, 2007
Gulf News: Dubai: Bank customers in the UAE soon may be protected from card skimming at ATMs, after several fell victim to the crime in 2003. Customers of one of the UAE's 49 banks will soon have to undergo fingerprinting and iris scanning, in addition to inputting PINs, before they can withdraw cash from an ATM. ATM-device fraud is deemed a problem for 48 percent of all financial institutions. "The PIN number is currently the only security deterrent available in the market - which could easily be broken," said Danny Chew, regional director of Hong Kong-based RCG Group, the company contracted to install the new solution.
