When police arrested a couple for planting cameras and credit card skimmers on Long Island Railroad ticket machines, they discovered a "virtual factory" for credit card fraud. An apartment the couple allegedly worked from contained cameras, skimmers, memory cards, credit cards, and two flash drives full of account numbers, the New York Times reports. "It was unclear how much money was stolen. At least one bank has reported thousands of dollars of losses on more than 50 accounts, the authorities said." Basically, the only safe way to handle your money is to keep all of it on you at all times.
