credit card readerin today's newsletter Answered

In today's newsletter there's an advert for a credit card reader.  Is this the one that fraudsters use to read credit card details from ATMs? 

If it is, please don't advertise how to do it.

The card readers used by criminals for building credit card "skimmers" are the exact same card readers used by everybody else for building everything from credit card point of sale terminals to hotel door locks.

Card readers aren't just used for credit cards. The instructable has lots of useful information that could be used to set up card swipe access to buildings/rooms.
