Credit card theft is nothing new but now some high-tech thieves have found a new way to steal people's info.
Hi-tech crooks were recently caught installing a half-dozen "skimmers" on cash registers at a Nordstrom store in Aventura, Fla.
The thieves plugged their "skimmers" into the Ps2 cable connectors that connect into the back of computerized cash registers.
The skimmers are Ps2 keystroke loggers, which are similar to a USB drive.
The Ps2 keystroke loggers record all the data from credit card purchases and store the information.
In this case, the thieves made sure their small equipment matched the connections on the back of the cash registers to avoid suspicion.
The photo above shows one of six skimmers found and removed from cash registers at the Nordstrom store in Aventura, Florida. According to a police report on the incident, "no one would have detected it unless there was a problem with the register."
