ATM hacker stung

This is an entertaining article about an attempt to hack into ATMs in the US - and how not to be a con-artist. By using an administrator's code hackers can change the settings on a cash machine so that it dispenses larger denomination notes than requested. The would-be fraudster put $400 on a pre-paid debit card and planned to use it to withdraw $8,000 in cash. His only mistake, apart from not getting the right codes, was to look for help from a convicted con-artist who tipped off the FBI.
