Damn... Even though its wrong, you gotta give the guy props for pulling somthing like this off. Unless its not hard, Im not the authority on hacking ATMs here.

This sounds pretty basic from a technical standpoint. Simply record the audio being transmitted, then compare it against the sounds for a phone tone.
Admittedly, he may need to do some test runs with a known card number..... Still... pretty interesting....

The most ingenious theives always end up with a better life than most people, no matter how long they spend in jail. The government will hire them and give them a whole new identity. Its sad.
But you gotta give it to him, thats pretty clever, although its probably simpler than we are thinking right now.[:::::CPU::::\\//:::::: AMD64 4800+X2 @2.9ghz::::::\\//::]
