Hijacking Credit Cards


For John, BLUFLet's be careful out there.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From The [Lowell] Sun we have "Credit-card skimmer found at Bedford gas pump".

Reporter Robert Mills wrote this article.

The lede:

BEDFORD -- Bedford police say a credit-card skimmer was found on a gas pump at a Shell station on Great Road last week and they're working with the U.S. Secret Service to investigate how it got there.
The article notes that such a "skimmer" was found at a TD Bank in Drum Hill (Chelmsford).  When the banks miss these things you know you have to be vigilant.  One suggestion from the article is to pay cash for gas (which at some stations saves you a couple pennies per gallon).
