Only old ATMS eat the cards, the new ones are swipe only. However most block the card after 3 attempts.

Not all of ATMs... I use an ATM that is new but not swipe... After I finish with it, the card pops back out.

ATMs are vary based on it's factory design/brand... and based on which location it is being used at. If you want an ATM in your building (such as a store), you will get swipe version of ATM for your building.

If you want an ATM in your new bank, you get whatever you want... swipe or insert slot ATM machine/kiosk.

I don't think it's an old/new thing. It's big/small ATMs. Here in Aussie anyway.

Upright ATMs in corner stores are usually swipe, and are terribly slow and not owned by a bank. ATM's owned by, and in the walls of banks and shopping centres usually will eat the card.

But yeah, or block the card at the least.

There was a skit last year where they set up a dummy atm machine in a mall with a person inside.When the card is inserted the person swipes the card and notes the entered pin number then rejects the card back to the customer as a failed transaction.

Lots of videos explaining the scams like
