Credit Card Skimmer Found In Pump At Gas Station in Allegan County
I’ve seen just enough news stories on people finding credit card skimmers – a device that captures your credit card numbers for scammers – at gas stations, that it’s a constant fear when I’m at the gas station, both at the pump and inside.
Allegan County Sheriff issued a warning on Facebook Friday morning after finding a credit card skimmer at a gas station in Martin. The post says the skimmer was inside the pump area, so you wouldn’t have been able to see it when pumping gas. They also give the good reminder to check your statement for weird purchases; even small ones.
Allegan County Sheriff said that’s the only one they’ve found around the county, but also followed it up with, “we don't know if others have them.”
