  • The Texas Department of Agriculture is warning Texans to be aware of credit card skimmers.

    If paying at the pump with a credit card, TDA recommends these tips to help you avoid becoming a victim of a gas pump skimmer: 

    •    Use pump closest to storefront, in line of sight for store personnel
    •    Before pumping, check for unusual Bluetooth signals with ID of string of numbers and letters; might be a skimmer
    •    Check that security tape on pump cabinet has not been damaged. Torn tape might indicate cabinet opened without store personnel's knowledge
    •    Safest bet is to pay inside with cash

    If the credit card scanner looks like it has been tampered with, move to another pump or pay inside.

    To report a fuel pump with a suspected skimming device please contact TDA at 800-TELL-TDA.
