Oscilloscope ATM Bank Robbery Movie, 1984-1990

Seen once or twice when it was newer. I have a very vague recollection of the basic premise…

The “bad” guys would sit in a car within view of an ATM machine. When a bank patron would insert their card into the machine, the machine would “play” the magnetic track on their card, and these bad guys would pick up the signals on an oscilloscope. They’d take this information back to their lair, garage, whatever, and create the signals on magnetic tape and, essentially, manufacture duplicate ATM cards, and clean out the customers’ accounts.
