skimming
The act of producing unauthorized copy of an electronic security device while it is being used for its intended purpose. Note: Originally, skimming meant making an illegal copy of a credit card or a bank card when the original was being used correctly. Typical methods of skimming involve use of a modified reader that reads and stores all the information that the original card contains.
