The U.S. Secret Service estimates that annual losses from ATM fraud totaled about $1 billion in 2008, or about $350,000 each day. Card skimming, where the fraudster affixes a bogus card reader on top of the real reader, accounts for more than 80 percent of ATM fraud.

And that was in 2008. Fraudsters are becoming even more sophisticated in defeating 'anti-skimming' technologies. Here is a really interesting website to educate yourself on this topic:

.....i have received info in an email that a particular ATM in Antigua has been using your info to tap your accounts....

.....if you are in that area, suggest you avoid the BAC machine on the square that spits out U.S dollars.
