Kennewick Police Report Gas Pump Skimmers

If you purchased gas recently in Kennewick with a credit or debit card you may want to double-check your bank statements as police say they’ve received reports from consumers their accounts were accessed and money was taken out. Authorities say this happens because hackers replace the credit card readers at gas pumps with skimmers that collect card data and PIN numbers. Experts say to double check card readers for signs of tampering or better yet pay for gas with cash.
