Simply a fake ATM that gives you fake money. Also duplicates the card's magnetic info strip so the owner of the fake ATM can use it later.

Mwaahaahaa!

       Or you could just have a false front that you can stick on any ATM. The keyboard, screen, and card accepter pass through from the real ATM, but the money falls into a storage compartment and fake bills are given to the customer.

       Baked by the way. A few years ago, a trio in the UK rented a High Street property and installed a reader on a fake ATM. They were busy reading cards and PIN numbers to use later. Unfortunately, a worker for the bank that they had used as a header realised that they didn't have an ATM there and they were convicted.
The judge who sentenced them paid tribute to their 'unmitigating gall' as they were a hair's breadth from getting away with it..
