In a multitude of countries today it is becoming more and more vital for devices used for payment or secure transactions to have a higher level of privacy from unauthorized viewing such as at the ATM machines; Payment Terminals; Cash Registers; PIN Entry devices etc.  PIN skimming is not something new, but the method has taken a major leap compared to how it was done many years back and criminals are constantly inventing new techniques to undermine weaknesses in security.
