Wireless payment machines stolen from Toronto restaurants used in fraud scheme

According to the CBC Article, Toronto police are tightlipped about the details of the fraud that stolen wireless payment terminals are being used to commit.  They are afraid to educate the public in case someone gets the idea to give it a try themselves.  That’s all the public has been waiting for – a criminal idea to implement!

The Mobilesyrup article talks more about the thefts themselves and less about the potential use of a stolen terminal.  (I don’t think its likely that the machines will end up for sale on Kijiji!)

I will take the risk of giving you a criminal idea to implement and drop a couple of security hints to retailers with wireless (and wired!) payment terminals.
