Richmond police are warning those who use credit card readers at gas pumps to be on the lookout for skimming devices that are used by identify thieves to steal personal financial information.
Police posted the warning on Facebook after officers responded to a report of a tampered gas pump. An investigation discovered pry marks along the outer door seam of the pump and a skimming device located behind the credit card reader.
"All pumps should have a security seal along any opening of the pump," police said. "If this seal has been tampered with, report this to the station attendant immediately."
