Glue is the weapon of choice in a new ATM scam that drains victims of their money at machines that have touchscreens.

Thieves glue down the "enter," "cancel," and "clear" buttons on an ATM's keypad. When victims go to use the keypad, they enter in their number and...realize the keys are stuck. When they go into the bank to complain, the scammers swoop in and withdraw money, using the touchscreen.
