ATM Skimmers


Regarding gas pump and ATM skimmers, the safest bet is to simply not use any card at the gas pump, period.

Instead, pay inside the gas station, ideally one with a chip reader at the terminal. If you're going to pay at the pump, however, at least consider using a credit card instead of a debit card. For ATMS, use those located inside secure areas.
The picture of the gray wires comes from a gas pump in The Colony. These skimmer devices can be bought online and some (the NFC device pictured) can be used with Bluetooth technology, with the scammer nearby in a vehicle. These skimmers can be placed on ATM machines and gas pumps. Inspect the device you are using and check for suspicious items!
