St. Pete police warn against credit-card skimming devices


Published:   |   Updated: July 14, 2014 at 03:53 PM

St. Petersburg police are warning motorists after two credit-card skimming devices were found at a gas station in the last week.

Police say a fraudulent device was found Tuesday afternoon at a self-serve pump at the Circle K/Shell gas station at 10600 Roosevelt Blvd. N.

Last week, Pinellas County deputies found a similar device was found at a Circle K/Shell station in the unincorporated Largo area.

Police are advising motorists to be aware of ATMs or gas pumps that show the following signs:

♦  Wires sticking out of the card reader.

♦  Loose or damaged card reader.

♦  Tape or tape residue on the card reader slot.

♦  The card reader looks different, or off color from the rest of the machine.

Anyone who notices these signs should contact bank/store management and contact local police, and check your accounts.
