Pay-At-The-Pump Skimming On The Rise

Wednesday, July 21, 2010 - 5:17 AM
This article at Bank Info Security brings up another worry for those who use debit cards especially those with reward checking accounts:

At a Shell station in Alachua, FL, last week, a service technician found a skimming device on a pay-at-the-pump terminal when he opened the machine for a routine maintenance check.

This incident, the latest in a wave of such attacks, highlights two concerns: That skimming isn't limited to ATMs, and that banking institutions and customers have yet another vulnerability to consider regarding payment card transactions.
