Skimmer Discovered At Gas Station On Busy South Abington Twp. Street
SOUTH ABINGTON TWP. — The discovery of a skimmer installed on a gas pump at a Valero station on a busy South Abington Twp. road prompted a warning from local police for people to check their financial statements.
Numerous people reported to police “thousands and thousands” of dollars scammed from their accounts, Police Chief Robert Gerrity said. Each victim had used their card at the 330 Northern Blvd. gas station.
Police opened an investigation with federal agencies Sept. 27. The device used was attached directly to the motherboard of the pump to record card numbers. The investigation continues.
Anyone who uses that gas station should check their finances and report any suspicious activity to police at 570-342-9111.
