We received this notice from a fuel supplier in Northern Ohio, but the warning should be heeded by all fuel retailers. Inspect your pay-at-the-pump card readers daily to check for possible tampering. Skimmers can be attached to your dispensers and cause immense problems.
Several stations along Mayfield Road, in suburban Cleveland, discovered credit card skimming devices attached to their dispenser card readers. You may want to be extra vigilant at your location and check your pumps for anything that looks unusual. Be ever mindful of pumps away from the sight lines of cashiers, where the “bad guys” can operate with less chance of detection.
Report suspicious activity to your local police and refer to your Credit Card Handbook for reporting requirements related to suspected skimming or other fraudulent activity.
