Police Warn of Thieves Targeting Your Credit Card Information at Gas Pumps

CC Skimmer

ABILENE, TX – The Abilene Police Department was called to the Shell gas station at 1389 Sayles Blvd. on Saturday, September 26, in reference to credit card skimming devices located in three of the gas pumps. The owner of the stations discovered them and contacted the police. It is unknown how long they were in the pumps stealing vital information. If you have used this station, you are asked to check your bank information and report any suspicious activity to your bank. The devices were placed inside the pump making it unnoticeable by customers. We would strongly urge customers to regularly check their bank statements on a regular basis to dispute any suspicious charges. This will aid in keeping your information safe.
