Fraud Alert: Credit Card Skimmers 

Skimming devices are hidden electronics used to 
steal banking and personal information stored 
on credit and debit cards.In most cases, skimmers 
are being placed inside gas pumps and are 
undetectable without opening the machine. 

Citizens can reduce the likelihood of becoming 
a victim by following the below tips: 

• Pay inside at the gas station, instead ofpaying at the pump. 
• If not using cash, always pay with a creditcard, not a debit card, for better fraud protection. 
• If using a debit card, run it as a creditcard instead of putting in a PIN number. 
• Consider using a refillable prepaid card 
to purchase gas at the pumps. 
• If you haven’t done so already, switch to achip reader on your card. 
• Regularly monitor your bank statementfor fraudulent activity. 
• Report fraudulent activity to your locallaw enforcement agency.
