PPD warns of skimmer scam

By PPD website, 10/10/19 1:10 PM

PRESCOTT – Over the recent week, the Prescott Police Department has been advised of thousands of dollars being taken from people’s bank accounts that have used their credit/debit cards at the pumps to purchase gasoline in and around the City of Prescott.

The PPD is currently investigating this issue by checking pumps for skimmers and working with financial institutions to narrow down all the businesses that have been compromised.

The Prescott Police Department strongly suggests you prepay for your gas inside the store at the counter in order to prevent becoming the next victim. Also, check with your financial institution to see if your card service offers fraud alert monitoring and have that enabled. This can catch fraud attempts early and save you valuable time and money.

As always, if anyone has any information concerning this investigation, please contact the PPD.
