If Ross Anderson and his team are correct then he could do it in less than thirteen guesses (if I remember correctly) if he was talking to the bank security hardware (due to a mistake in protocols)...

The problem with that attack (from the attacker's perspective) is that if you want to get away with it you need to figure out how to rent a booth inside an amusement park in a way that will not be traceable back to you later. I'm sure that's possible with a combination of social engineering and forgery, but the profit-to-risk ratio is not particularly appealing compared to other kinds of attacks.

"if you want to get away with it you need to figure out how to rent a booth inside an amusement park in a way that will not be traceable back to you later."

You are going to find a carnie the day after the carnival leaves town?
