Definitely sounds like it was skimmed from an ATM or eftpos terminal and then details sold.

It's so icky to think that someone has used my money to buy guns/ammunition.
I'm changing the account my pay goes into. Gotta protect myself. I really don't want to go through this again.

I can relate somewhat to the money taking ages to come back, I am currently waiting for an errored atm transaction to be given back. I went to withdraw money, atm errored and I was assured no money was taken, when I went to another atm to withdraw it out but I couldn't because the money was gone. This happened around the 22nd of August and I lost $200 which really put us out as we live week to week currently. I would be so mad if someone had stolen my details. Is there any way to track it down?

This is the second time in a few weeks I have heard of thing happening to someone with an ING account. If I were you, I would be switching away from the immediately- as in, closing all accounts.
I hope you can recover your money quickly- I have had my PayPal account skimmed, which is linked to my bank, silly sausages tried to withdraw about $1500 but the joke was on them, because I probably only had about $400 in there. Still, it wasn't nice and I looked like a confused idiot who couldn't pay for her petrol that morning.

I've done a bit of reading on the subject - thieves fit devices onto ATM's, or sometimes replace eftpos terminals with skimming devices. Then when they have a whole bunch of card numbers, they sell them.

They also use programs that run 1000s and 1000s of random numbers and attempt to get lucky. It may be entirely just bad luck!
