Skimming device found in Giles County
***Fraud Alert*** Giles County Sheriff’s Office investigators have recovered a bluetooth skimming device from a gas pump at a station in Giles County. Reports from other jurisdictions lead us to believe that these devices have been planted at several convenience stores along the route 460 corridor.
Skimming devices are designed to trap credit card information so that it can later be used to defraud unassuming customers. We urge our residents to be on the lookout for fraudulent charges on their credit/debit cards. If you find suspicious account activity, then please contact our office at 540-921-3842. We also urge our business owners to keep a watch on their pump islands and report any suspicious activity.
