Possession of a skimmer now a felony in Minnesota

A new law went into effect in Minnesota today. As reported by Mark Sommerhauser:

The Legislature moved to criminalize possession of “skimming” devices that can be used to steal someone’s identity. The new law makes it a felony to possess devices that allow unauthorized scanning and recording of personal information from the magnetic strip of a credit card.
