Keeping Your Information Secure At The Pump

Here are some tips to help keep your information secure while getting gas:

To help keep your information secure at the gas pump look for security tape over gas pump cabinets to ensure it hasn't been tampered with by unauthorized parties. If the security tape is removed, cut or the gas pump appears tampered with, do not use it and report it to the manager.
• Look for security tape over gas pump cabinets to ensure it hasn't been tampered with by unauthorized parties. If the security tape is removed, cut or the gas pump appears tampered with, do not use it and report it to the manager.


• Use gas pumps located closer to the front of the gas station as fraudsters will typically place skimming devices at gas pumps away from the store to go unnoticed.


• Run your debit card as a credit card instead of entering a PIN number or use your credit card instead of your debit card.

If you suspect that your debit or credit card numbers may have been compromised, report it immediately to us and the authorities.
