Card Skimmer Shows Up On 7-Eleven Gas Pump

Just when you thought it was safe to fill up your car while filling yourself with a Big Gulp, a credit-card skimmer has turned up on a gas pump at a 7-Eleven in Vancouver, WA. The skimmer didn’t affect transactions, so customers were able to pump gas while the skimmer quietly collected their credit-card numbers.

According to KPTV in Portland, the skimmer was discovered earlier this week by a station employee, and managers at the 7-Eleven have no idea how long it was there before it was discovered.
