It happened to me, and not only that they even got my PIN number I was told by my bank after they notify me of a Suspicious transaction to never pay at the pump and if you do don't use it as a debit card use it as credit but it's better pay inside. I was lucky that my bank notify me right away a something that was suspicious and was able to stop it. I learned a valuable lesson do not pay at the pump and now I use a set amount of cash and pay inside.

Can't believe some people are heartless, people work hard for their money and these thieves take their hard earned money then to find out when buying groceries no more money, these thieves do this for some selfish pleasure I think the death penalty should be the proper punishment.

The criminals need harsher punishments. It takes a while to recover your identity. I have been hit twice in my lifetime and the proof you have to get to clear your name takes time. If I ever see anyone doing this in person I would probably cause them some serious bodily injury. They don't give a damn about who they hurt financially.

I am glad that I pay inside and not at the pump. Not only am I avoiding being scammed but I am also keeping people employed.

Yes! Done to me. Thousands of dollars. Worse of all Bank of America reversed their initial credit to my account because after their investigation it was determined to not be fraud. Thieves used our card to buy money orders at USPS. Be careful!!!!

Swipesss lol I pay gas in the store
Dr. Fastestinthewest
Haaaa haaaa. You dopes. The pumps are mandated to be certified by the state and are tagged as such. Yet, the credit card device could be marked with an official tape to show the device has not been tampered. Not done. Why? It's in the credit card interests to get scammed. You dolts. Teagards you saps...

Always put alerts on your card so you can get a txt whenever it is used. If it was not your purchase, you can just lock your card and report to your bank. Or lock up your card when not in use

Thankfully, I pay for gas ⛽️with cash 💵
I pay with CASH ONLY at the gas station. And I pay inside face-to-face with the cashier.
Lamar Childers
