What is shoulder surfing?

Shoulder surfing is a common practice among the thieves who are after stealing your identity. They look for the opportunity when they can look over your shoulder to find out your “Personal Identification Number”. It occurs generally at the ATM centers. At times the thieves install fake ATM machines which can extract the personal information from the card and this is transferred to the fake card manufacturers. Your bank account might get drained and you will not have any idea about it.
