The store previously found a credit card skimmer on Pump #3 on July 9, 2018 and removed the device. Both skimmers were taken into possession by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

SKIMMER TIPS

If paying at the pump with a credit card, these tips might help you avoid becoming a victim of a gas pump skimmer:

• Use pump closest to storefront, in line of sight for store personnel

• Before pumping, check for unusual bluetooth signals with ID of string of numbers and letters; might be a skimmer

• Check that security tape on pump cabinet has not been damaged. Torn tape might indicate cabinet opened without store personnel’s knowlege

• Safest bet is to pay inside with cash

• Always save the receipt and monitor your bank statements after filling up.

• If you think you’ve been skimmed, contact 1-800-TELL-TDA and we will send an inspector to check it out.
