Gas Pump Skimmer Found In Hope Area

By Staff, 03/27/17 10:09 AM

HOPE – A gas pump credit/debit card skimmer has been found Monday morning in the Hope area. All other stations in Hope have been checked, and this appears to be an isolated event.

Skimmers enable the enstallers to steal the cardholders’ information, stealing their information and often draining their accounts. Skimmers were recently found installed in pumps in both Nashville and Murfreesboro.

To avoid falling prey to skimmers, which often cannot be noticeable from the outside of the pump, you can:

  • Pay with cash or go inside the station to pay with a card.
  • Check to make sure the pump hadn’t been tampered with.
  • Use a gas pump closer to the station. Installers normally put the skimmers in pumps furthest from the station building.
  • Use a credit card instead of a debit card. Credit cards usually have more protection for the cardholder.
