MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) – Miami Beach police have released surveillance video of two men who were caught on camera placing a card skimmer over a credit/debit scanner at a gas station.

It happened Wednesday, around 9:30 p.m., at Chevron at 1453 Alton Road.

On the video, one of the men distracts the clerk while the other places the skimmer over the payment keypad located near the register. It took less than three seconds to put it in place.

They both then left the gas station.

How is this new?

Maybe new that they were caught, but the distraction + placement combo is as old as skimming itself.

They had even made them so small, they use clear overlays that hold all the hardware.   Very hard to spot.

I have never had the honors of seeing one of these. But it does look exactly like the machine they placed it over, at least from the camera video.
