ATM Fraud Victim? CBS Wants to Talk

A CBS Evening News producer sent us a note today. She wants to do a story on the the big ATM PIN Block Scam story we made such a fuss about last month.

The producer is looking to talk to people who had money withdrawn from their accounts during the scam wave. If you’re interested in speaking on camera about your experience, drop a note in the comments or send an email to They’re looking for people who actually had money fraudulently withdrawn, not just a forced debit-card reissue.

Not only will you be helping inform other consumers about how insecure PIN transactions are, you can also help promote the power of blogs on national TV.

    I sent you an e-mail, but thought I’d comment also. I’d be happy to talk about it (and maybe I’ll have a chance to mention that the authorities try to make you feel like you did something wrong, even after it is clear that there is something bigger happening)
