Man arrested for putting 'skimmers' on ATMs

Linky: Toronto man accused of installing ATM ‘skimmers’ across city

Given that we’re in the midst of changing to chip-and-pin cards for both debit cards and credit cards, was this a last gasp effort while Canadian magstripe cards are still active?

The story doesn’t give enough information. Were the skimmers on non-bank ‘white label’ ATMs? I believe there’s a deadline of the end of 2012 for ATMs to be able to accept chip debit cards, and 2015 for point-of-sale terminals.
