Credit Card Skimmer Found On Fuel Pump


If you recently stopped at one Johnston County convenience store and paid for fuel with your bank card, you should pay close attention to your financial statement.

On Tuesday, a state inspector found an illegal credit card skimming device concealed inside a fuel pump at the Panthers 11 Store at 14632 Highway 50 North, Garner.  Authorities don’t know how long the device had been on the pump. 

These illegal devices skim your credit and debit card information when you swipe your card at the gas pump for payment.  The devices store your name, card number, and card expiration date.    

There have been no reports of financial card fraud directly linked to this location, but you should still closely monitor your card statements for any possible misuse.
