Shell Gas Station Uses Stickers To Prevent Credit Card Skimming

From the Consumerist
Eagle-eyed Consumerist reader Leah spotted a sticker on the pump at her local Shell, asking customers to alert the cashier if the decal was broken, which would indicate the machine had possibly been tampered with.

It may help a little, but if the crooks know how to put in a bogus card reader, I would think they would be able to peel off the sticker or replace it with a fake sticker.
