"On Oct. 6, The U.S. Secret Service requested the assistance of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department to locate a possible credit card skimmer device at a local gas station," SCMPD reports today.

"Through a coordinated effort, the skimming device was located inside a gas pump at the Citgo gas station on the 4400 block of Habersham Street."

Citgo gas station employees were unaware the device had been placed in the gas pump and cooperated in the recovery of the device, police report.


Credit card skimmers can be placed on the exterior or interior of gas pumps, and some devices use Bluetooth to access the data immediately. If you recently used your credit or debit card at these gas pumps, SCMPD Financial Crimes recommends you check your card statements.
