Avoiding card skimmers at the pump

Data security



Many of us have heard of fuel dispensers being a target for card-skimming devices.  Brian Krebs wrote a post on his blog “Krebs on Security” on how to avoid these card skimmers, and he uses the San Antonio Police Department as a source for tips. Some of these tips include using only new fuel dispensers that have a horizontal card slot accompanied by a raised metal keypad and using only credit cards at the pump. To read the rest of his great post, check out the link above.
