Thieves skimming credit card info at gas pumps

Covert devices used to spy on customers, pry into accounts

The combined cases total $1million to $3.5million stolen from hundreds of victims' accounts, Sebby says. The department is trying to prevent additional identity fraud by asking gas stations to consider placing sticker seals on the pumps that employees can check daily. "With identify theft, it's not a matter of if you're going to be a victim, it's a matter of when," Sebby says.
