Ulster County Exec Says Skimmers Were Found At Local Gas Stations
An investigation in under way in Ulster County, New York, after county employees found credit card skimmers at local gas stations.
Ulster County Executive Mike Hein is urging residents to be vigilant after an investigation by the county’s Department of Weights and Measures discovered two electronic credit card skimming devices at two Citgo gas stations — one in Stone Ridge and the other in Shokan. They were found during the Department’s participation in a statewide sweep for the devices. Skimmers are illegal credit card readers attached to payment terminals at ATMs or on gas station pumps, that can allow a third party to collect credit card data, including personal identification numbers.
