Secret Service Says Check Your Bank Receipts

Chicot Memorial

THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — If you were traveling over the holiday and used your bank credit or debit card at a gas pump along the way you might want to check your bank statements. The Secret Service sent out warnings about an upsurge in credit card thefts just in time for Independence Day. They say specifically that a recent sting revealed skimmers in gas pumps continue to be a problem. According to officials, the thieves can make it hard to detect their devices which are often hidden from view. The devices which can be hidden inside the pumps log your credit card information and pin numbers. Motorists are being told to avoid paying with credit cards at the pump. The Secret Service says they recently found 59 skimmers in 85 locations, during a 21 state sweep, on the hunt for credit card thieves.
