Credit/Debit Card Skimmer Found at Gas Pump in Boone County

Boone County residents are being warned to inspect gasoline pump key pads before using their debit or credit card.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Department says they discovered a skimmer being used at a convenience store in Boone County south of Columbia yesterday (Tuesday).


The department says the convenience store was alerted to the skimmer by two customers who bought gas and were contacted by their credit card companies about suspicious transactions on their accounts later on that day.

The department says if possible use credit instead of debit when buying gas at the pump.

Also an App is available which scans for common Bluetooth Skimmers.
