Seven Skimmers Found in Area Gas Pumps

Seven Skimmers Found in Area Gas Pumps

After a warning to the public to be aware when using ATM and gas pumps at local convenience stores, Sulphur Springs Police found five skimmers. Hopkins County Investigators and Deputies found two at area convenience stores. The devices found Thursday were all inside the gas pumps and undetectable from the outside of the pump.


Two of the seven skimmers found in gas pumps by city and county law enforcement.

A Scam Alert was issued mid-morning Thursday by Sulphur Springs Police Chief Jay Sanders. Sanders says Sulphur Springs Police and County Deputies were examining ATM machines and gas pumps across the city and county. Criminals are able to hide these devices inside machines. Sanders said that before placing your credit card into the machine, shake the scanner to be sure it is intact and a skimmer has not been put in place.

He also said that some scam artists are taking the front off the gas pumps and placing the skimmer inside the machine. A number of skimmers have been located Thursday by local law enforcement.
