Be Aware of Gas Skimmers

Beware of Gas Skimmers

BSO Weston District urges you to be vigilant when pumping gas.  Check to ensure that the security tape is in place and has an unbroken seal.  Gas skimmers are prevalent throughout South Florida, and are becoming more sophisticated.

If the seal is broken or has the words 'void' on the sticker - do not use and tell the gas station attendant. Taking a few seconds to do this quick check can help keep your identity safe and your credit card from being copied.  To avoid being victimized by credit card skimming, pay by cash. 

As always, it is also recommended to lock your doors when you are pumping gas to avoid being burglarized while at the pump!
