Credit Card Skimmers Confirmed on Gas Stations Along I-20/59
Investigators with the Tuscaloosa Police Department said they have become aware of credit card skimmers that were discovered on gas pumps along Interstate 20/59.
According to TPD's Facebook page, the offenders put skimmers on pumps from one exit to the next. The offenders return after a period of time and use the victim's credit card information after time passes.
The investigators states this method makes finding incriminating video footage less likely, preventing scammers from getting caught.
TPD’s Criminal Investigations Division said local gas stations have been searched but did not find any skimmers currently in use.
TPD states customers should monitor bank statements and report any fraudulent activity.
