[Japanese]
日本の銀行も大変なものだ。アキバとかで売ってる小型カメラと悪い奴のせいで俺らのお金が危ないことになっている。話によると、悪い連中は俺らがお金を引き落とす事よりも、預けるほうに興味があるようだ。

なぜなら、預けるときには、画面上にお金を引き落とすための情報が全部揃うからだ。
例えば、口座番号、銀行名、部店コード、などなど。引き出す時の暗証番号だけだと、あまり意味ないらしい。だから、しばらく騒動が落ち着くまではATMで預金は避けた方が良いみたいだ。

UFJ ATM 盗撮

[English]
All of you Tokyo visitors who aren’t aware of some of the issues in Japan, becareful using ATMs in Japan (I’m sure you’re always careful using ATM in your country).

Recently, banks (UFJ) have found many hidden remote mini cameras on ATM machines looking down at the numbers entered by the users. Apparently, those bad guys are more likely going after the information you enter “to deposit”.

Reason is, for withdrawls, the bad dudes need the actual card along with those numbers they got. However, if you’re trying to deposit from the ATM machine, looks like all the info (bank name, branch code, account no., etc) are all shown on the screen. Damn slick.

So try to be more alert on around the ATM machine when you use it.
