174451259Millennials are being targeted by a new scam in which criminals steal money from accounts via the victim’s ATM card.

Called “cracking cards,” the ruse fools young adults into handing over ATM PIN numbers as part of an easy-money scheme. The criminals typically contact the young adult via social media, ask if they can use ther person’s account to cash a check, and then promise the victim a cut of the money they deposit. However, the fraudster deposits only fake checks and then quickly drains the victim’s account.

Never share your PIN number or card with anyone.
