It's easy to get video of the pin number if you're particularly devious, lazy, creative and / or patient.
Really, all one has to do is record it with their smartphone nearby from behind while you key it into the keypad thingamabob, really all you have to
do is do that and not even bother with any kind of skimmer if your phone can catch it clearly enough and then run home or jump online and buy all
kinds of stuff while somebody else pays for it.
That's why I always look around before I key in my pin, and frequently catch people looking until I see they are when I look at them, and have asked
people with phones to step out from behind me while keying into them once or twice.
If anybody thought a smartphone with a camera was simply for the convenience of the end user I feel they are sorely mistaken and the things that are
being done with them were probably considered well before they were ever offered to the masses. I myself don't have one considering how much they
cost and the fact that they really aren't that useful to me considering how fragile and of limited they actually are.
If the economy gets much worse I may just consider becoming devious, creative and patient too.
