Keep An Eye Out For Gas Pump Card Skimmers For Your 4th Travels!

posted by Lisa Foxx - 

If you are traveling on the 4th this is important to know! 

The U.S Secret Service is warning motorists, businesses and police of a surge in stealing credit card information at gas pumps.

Fraudsters are installing a tiny device called a skimmer inside the gas pump which copies credit card information when customers pay.

As of right now, the Secret Service has recovered 59 skimmers from 85 locations.

A high-level skimmer is able to send credit card information through a Bluetooth device and not have to return to the scene of the crime. 

In order to reduce your credit card information from being stolen, you can pay with credit cards inside the gas station, rather than at the pump.
