Loose Slot
 One more thing interesting and to be careful for getting an attack from hackers is loose slot , in case u find that the slot is little bit loose , it indicates the presence of a loop which can be a small plastic device with a barb that holds ur card back in the machine , u might have a impression that the machine has swallowed ur card or it might have stuck .

Fake Keypads
