  • "Australia's big banks have ruled out sending SMS messages to bank customers every time cash is withdrawn from their accounts at ATMs, despite a warning that card skimming is rife here. Romanian Police Chief Inspector Elvis Tudose told the National Identity Crime Symposium on the Gold Coast yesterday that Australia was seen as a soft target for ATM skimming gangs. He said criminals used the country's older-style ATM machines, higher cash withdrawal limits and community naivete to strip as much as $40,700 a day from Australian bank customers."
