    "A Google security researcher attending the Black Hat/DEFCON conferences in Las Vegas was victimized by a skimming device placed in an ATM at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

    Chris Paget, an RFID security expert who now works on Google’s security team, said he lost $200 to a rigged ATM that also claimed several other victims. Inexplicably, Paget said he got no help from hotel security or local police in Las Vegas when he reported the problem."
