Credit Card Skimmer Removed from Gas Pump in Angelina County
Wednesday morning, March 28, deputies with Angelina County Sheriff’s Office recovered a “skimming device” from pumps at Fairview Mini Mart located at 2979 FM 2108 in Lufkin.
According to business personnel, the device may have been in place for approximately 1 week, possibly causing problems with the pumping system which led to that pump being shut down. It is not known if any credit/debit information was obtained before the pump was locked out.
Citizens are reminded to check their credit and debit accounts frequently to limit damage to their accounts. Notify your credit and banking institutions if any suspicious charges are noted.
When using a card operated gas pump or any other card operated device, notify authorities if anything suspicious is noted.
