Beware of Gas Pump Credit Card Skimmers

Be on the look out for gas pump credit card skimmers.  Last month Oklahoma thieves gained $400,000 before they were caught.

The fraud devices included a card skimmer and a fake PIN pad overlay designed to capture PINs from customers who paid at the pump with a debit card.  Read the whole article on Krebs on Security.
