There’s a new warning out today for consumers: those who specialize in stealing your debit card and credit card numbers now have a new way to do it. You’re in danger of this new form of theft if you have a debit or credit card that you don't physically swipe through a machine. Thieves are now able to grab the numbers off of those cards by standing next to you and putting a small machine near your purse or wallet. The machine is able to read the numbers if it's close enough. So far; local bank experts say they haven't seen this surface in Central Oregon,  but it is happening in some of the bigger cities. The advice from bankers is to be aware of your surroundings and especially be careful of a stranger trying to stand too close to you in a crowd. If your credit or debit cards have a “(((“ symbol; they are vulnerable.
