homemade magnetic card reader

Sorry i cant help ,Ive wondered about doing the same. I did a search and found programmable basic cards. The kit costs 50 pounds (england of course) claims youll be programming basic cards within the day.

Thats great but there is no info on a card reader :)

Not that it's happening here but please be careful before helping someone build a magnetic stripe reader with memory.

There are only a few reasons why people would want to store credit cards to eeprom without validating or anything, fraud.

People typically build these small msr piggy back readers and attach them to ATM machines to steal your info or use them in businesses with credit card sales. They then go back home and download it to the PC.

Although I cannot say for certain whether or not seba is doing this, it look's like a possibility. Could you imagine your card #s stolen and you helped build the device... :|

Just my 2 cents. Take care my friends.
