Beware of gas pump credit/debit card skimmers this holiday. I hate that I even have to post something like this- however better to be safe than sorry. I always use my card at the pump...
- The Secret Service has a warning for us while we celebrate the 4th of July - Watch out for credit/debit card skimmers at gas stations.
- A skimmer is a small device that a thief can install where you swipe you card at a gas pump. The skimmer can gather all of your card information.
- Over the last weekend, Secret Service agents went looking for the devices in 21 states. They recovered 59 skimmers from 85 locations nationwide.
- Experts say the best way to avoid being skimmed is by paying inside the gas station with your card or even better, with cash.
