Henderson police are warning people about an uptick in card skimming at gas pumps.

The skimming occurs when someone attaches an electronic device to a gas pump or other card reader. Once a card is swiped through it, the device gathers the user's information that can then be used to commit fraud. 

Some warning signs of card skimming include:

  • The card slot on the reader is loose
  • Double-sided tape or glue is present around the reader
  • Signs the lock has been tampered with
  • The transaction doesn't go through after the first swipe
