Netizen Shares Experience On How They Lost Their Money In A Blink Of An Eye

ATM Skimmers are on it again! Last October 3, a netizen’s post has become viral because of another case of ATM skimming.

The ATM holder, who had an account with Banco De Oro (BDO) said her husband from United Arab Emirates (UAE) , sent her money on October 2, 2016 around 2:30pm. Since it was Sunday, the victim decided to check if the money has landed the day after, October 3.

She had the shock of her life when she discovered the money and their savings are gone for life! The victim stated that the last time she took money from their bank account was September 27, so she’s 100% that someone had hacked their bank account.

She then contacted BDO for assistance regarding this dilemma, and all that BDO Customer Support can say is that she had withdrawn money from a hacked ATM or is infected with a skimming device and a report would be filed. She would then need to wait for 2 weeks up to 2 months for a resolution, and no expectation that her money will be returned.

What’s more shocking is that she’s not the only one who filed a complaint on the same issue, the other victim said they checked in their ATM they had P25,000 on their account and afterwards it became P100.

Be aware po mga ATM holder lalo na sa BDO...Last Oct 2(yesterday around 2:30pm) nagsend po ng pera ang asawa ko from UAE..its sunday at malayo po ang bahay namin sa banko so i decided to check the money this day Oct 3.And laking gulat ko na may mgatransaction ng ganyan..at nangyare lamang po sa loob ng ilang oras after makapadala ng asawa ko.last na nag widraw ako is sept 27.pa..so nireport na po sa BDO they said nakapagwidraw daw ako sa atm machine na infected ng skimming or hacking device..grabe lang..di ko ineexpect na mabibiktima ako..ar eto pa may kasabay pa ko..malaking halaga din nawala sakanya..yesterday lang nagcheck sya may 25k pa atm nia at laking gulat nia na kanina pag check nia around 100 pesos na lang balance nia sa atm..Its hard to believe na kahit anong pag iingat mo hindi ka talaga makakaligtas sa mga kriminal..at masaklap pa dito we have to wait fro 2 weeks to 2 months for investigation at wala pa kasiguraduhan kung maibabalik saamin yun pera..its a remmitance.Pinaghihirapan po yun ng mga mahal namin sa buhay sa ibang bansa tapos kukuhanin lang ng walang hirap..To BDO sana naman po mas higpitan nio pa po ang security nio dahil isa kayo sa pinakamadaming customer..madami po nagtitiwala sainyo.at sana po pabilisin ang pagprocess dahil wala po kaming kasalanan sa nangyareng ito..we even don't know kung alin mga machines ang infected ng skimming..and sana po dont suggest na over the counter na lang magwithdraw palage dahil ano pa sense ng atm mahine system nio...Mag ingat po tayong lahat..God bless

ATM skimming is no longer new to our ears, but it’s really alarming that banks can only advise their account holders to be very careful when withdrawing money, whereas they should be responsible with the security of their ATM machines.
