Gas Pumps with credit card skimmers installed

Skimmers Siphoning Card Data at the Pump

"Thieves recently attached bank card skimmers to gas pumps at more than 30 service stations around Denver"

"The compromised pumps showed no outward signs of having been tampered with or altered"

"all of the pumps in question contained a device on the inside of the pumps designed to record data stored on the back of cards inserted into the compromised pumps"

A possible protection? Use the pumps closest to the office - they are less likely to have been tampered with.
