Let’s face it, none of us really like having to fill up our gas tanks, we just have to. Well, now we have one more reason to dislike filling up: credit card fraud. Thieves are using credit card skimmers at gas station pay terminals to steal your card information. What is the best way to prevent them from doing this? Never choosing to pay with debit and inputting your pin at these stations. The device they use basically replicates the magnetic stripe on the back of your card and allows them to make a copy of your card. If you input your pin while paying for gas and there is a credit card skimmer installed on the station, you just gave the thieves all the information they need to be able to walk up to an ATM and literally pull out as much of your cash as they want. I hope that gets your attention.
