Want to get to the root of ATM Anti-Skimming?
Cook’s Patent Pending Suspicious Activity Notification using smart camera is the next trend…
ATM skimming has been a huge issue with most financial institutions. Anti-skimming kits exist and are installed, then the criminals develop new ways around it. Cook has developed a patent-pending solution that gets to the root of the skimming issue and any other suspicious activity. Here’s how it works. Cook installs a smart camera above the ATM/ITM that flags loitering or suspicious activity. Cook’s technology then cross-references that alert with the ATMs transaction log. If there is no transaction, an alert is sent to the financial institution where they can view the video immediately or outsource to Cook to pre-screen. In fact, we can also alert based on specific transaction and or transaction sequence. Example: balance inquiry then maximum withdrawal, multiple invalid transactions, multiple maximum withdrawal, etc can all send an alert.
Cook’s CTO Levi Daily states “the sample below didn’t catch a criminal inserting a skimmer, but it did catch him rummaging through trash collecting customer information and receipts, showing how the alert system can work effectively for FI’s”. To learn more click here.
