Here in Chile PIN is mandatory... but cloning is still being done (a hidden camera usually captures your PIN)

News flash! Now they are cloning - and altering - the swipe machines, to capture everything including PIN and sending it through hi intensity bluetooth. The machines (GPRS -EDGE) are being switched without the merchant's knowledge.

There's a story about a famous old clock that sat above the booths of a bank here in Chile. The bank used this clock as a kind of trademark, you could see it on every leaflet, every catalog and almost every paper this bank issued

One day, two guys appeared with blue overalls, helmets, and a stepladder.

Acting absolutely normal they remove this clock for maintenance reasons.... no one ever saw the clock again! there was no maintenance scheduled... it was the perfect crime!!
