Credit Card Skimmer Found At Gas Station In Coldwater
Credit Card skimmers have been the subject of much discussion in Michigan as of late, and now another gas pump in Southwest Michigan has been found to have one hidden inside.
The device, used for stealing credit card information, was found on a Citgo pump on East Chicago Road in Coldwater Wednesday morning. This is the 21st skimmer found in Michigan since August, with many of them being found in Southwest Michigan.
No arrests have been made at this time.
Authorities say that to prevent being a victim of credit card theft, use pumps closer to the station itself, look for the red seal on the pump for signs of tampering, and to keep a close eye on your bank account if you think you used a pump that might have been tampered with.
