Recently credit card skimming devices have been found in gas stations in the St. Louis area. Although these ones are occurring in St. Louis, this happens everywhere. Officers are finding them all the time in gas pumps, so it is very important to stay on track of your credit/debit card bills. These skimming devices are used more at gas stations than ATMs because the pumps are easily accessible and even sold online.
Skimming devices are very hard to avoid and even the new chip credit cards can be hacked, stated Vinny Troia, Cyber Security Expert and CEO of Night Lion Security. Troia’s only advice to prevent being hacked this way is to check your statement’s regularly.
