Police urge drivers to check for fraudulent transactions after a skimming device was found at a Circle K in Jeffersonville, Indiana on Thursday evening.
Store management at the Circle K at the intersection of State Highway 62 and Utica Sellersburg Road contacted police after finding the device on a fuel pump. Jeffersonville Police Department identified it as a skimming device.
Many people commute to Louisville, Charlestown and Madison and use this fuel station, according to Jeffersonville Police. Police are urging people to share this information with anyone who uses the Highway 62 corridor.
Police suggest drivers check their financial statements for unusual activity. To avoid potential fraudulent situations at fuel stations, police advise customers to use cash or pay inside. The newest chip card technology is also an effort by financial institutions to prevent fraudulent transactions.
If anyone has information related to this skimming device, or observe any unusual activity near fuel pumps or ATM machines, police ask customers to notify store management, then notify police.
The JPD Detective Division is investigating.
