I was thinking the same thing? Don't you need her card too?dcrigger said:Maybe I'm missing something but... ok, so now I have this lady's PIN code... and that allows me to do..... what?? I don't her card. I don't know her account number.
So I can't go to her bank and pull out money.
I can't go to an ATM and pull out her money.
I can't buy anything at a retail store.
I can't buy anything online.
I can't check her account balance.
I can't find out where she lives.
Not without also stealing her ATM card...
... at which point she'll call her bank, rendering both the card and pin code useless.
So only in that small window between the theft of the card (not the PIN) and reporting the threat is she in any danger of losing any money.
Yet the dude in the video is all warning us about this "threat" - what threat?
I mean besides all the fear talk - wasn't what the video actually showed was that her money's safe, he bought a Red Bull and got to play with his nifty IR scanner. And yes, he now knows her pin code - which is of zero value to him.
Or am I missing something?
All you need is the card number. My common sense tells me that the video presupposes a thief would already have the card number if they are fishing for the PIN.homeby5 said:
