With our increasing dependence on debit and credit card transactions, MCSO wants to provide a little information to you regarding skimmers.

In recent years, credit card fraud and identity theft have steadily increased, and many of those crimes involved the use of credit card skimmers.
 
Skimmers have been found on fuel dispensers and ATMs across the country. Criminals use these devices to secretly steal credit and debit card information, which is used to commit fraud and identity theft.
 
You can protect yourself by taking some simple steps to deter criminals from installing skimmers, and detect skimmers if they have been installed...
 
1. Check your account regularly for any suspicious activity.
2. If paying at the pump, use a pump that is close to the attendants. If the pump seal is broken or doesn't have one DON'T USE IT. If the lock looks tampered don't use it.
3. Pay inside when possible.
4. Check the credit card machine or ATM for any tampering or any skimming device being added to where you insert your credit card.

@KingwoodDotCom : Yes, this reminder is good, we tend to get complacent.

Wow I had never seen this before. Went to Tiffs Treats and the sign says they are a cashless place. So you have to use a credit card. Well ok.

@Donnawisdom :
I'm cashless too, but not by choice.
