Chattanooga PD Offers Advice For Avoiding Skimmer Fraud.
Chattanooga Police Department Fraud Officers offer advice to avoid becoming a victim at the gas pump:
- If anti-tampering seal is broken contact store management immediately and don’t use the machine
- Use debit cards as credit. Since credit option doesn’t require a PIN the purchaser has more protection.
- Cover the keys while entering your debit/credit password
- Monitor your account(s) daily online and report fraudulent transactions to your bank or credit union immediately
- Make payment inside with cashier
