ATM thieves use glue and "Tap" function to drain accounts at Chase Bank

ABC 7 Chicago

SAN FRANCISCO -- ATMs provide great convenience -- but they're also longtime targets of thieves. Some use skimmers to steal your account number, or stand nearby to rob customers. Now there's a new kind of ATM fraud -- and a warning to watch out if you use the "tap" function on your debit card.

The tap feature uses radio waves to access your account -- no need to insert your card. But, some Chase Bank customers say thieves used the tap feature plus some ordinary glue to steal their money.
