Authorities in Texas continue to find illegal credit card data skimmers at gas stations across the state.It's an issue affecting consumers nationwide.The latest case, according to the Texas Department of Agriculture, happened Wednesday at a gas station in Austin. The skimmers, which can steal a victim’s financial data from credit cards, were discovered outside a Speedy Stop, the Ag Department said in a statement Wednesday.A TDA inspector “found four skimmer devices on pump #5,” the department said.The TDA recommends that the public follow these tips to avoid becoming victims of gas pump skimmers:‒ Use the pump closest to storefront so that you are in the line of sight of store personnel.‒ Before pumping, check for Bluetooth signals that might indicate whether a skimmer is present.‒ Make sure the strip of security tape on the gas pump cabinet has not been torn. Damaged tape might indicate that the cabinet was opened without the store employees’ knowledge.‒ The safest way to pay is inside with cash.
