Card-skimming devices found at Lee County gas stations
A warning to drivers in Southwest Florida: Four illegal gas skimmers were found in Lee County. Deputies will not say at which stations the devices were found, but four of these gas skimmers were found after a sweep of 94 stations in Lee County, NBC2 reports. Since March 2015, more than 160 skimmers have been found statewide with an estimated $1,000 swiped from each victim. Thieves use a homemade device that goes inside credit card readers. Slide your card in and you might as well hand over your wallet. The Lee County Sheriff's Office said if you're skeptical, check the card reader. If it's loose, don't use it.
