Hunter Cat: ATM Card Skimmer Detector
The Hunter Cat is the world's first pocket ATM Card Skimmer Detector.
Card Skimmers are devices containing magnetic readers that are covertly added onto / into ATMs, allowing criminals to 'skim' the data off a card's magnetic strip.
Over time, Card Skimmers have become increasingly difficult to detect visually, and are no longer restricted to ATMs, appearing on self-checkouts, petrol pumps, bank doors, etc.
The Hunter Cat is a Skimmer Detector - allowing users to quickly audit a device before inserting their real card.
The device detects the number of magnetic heads that pass over the card, providing instant analysis: OK, Warning, or Dangerous.
