Credit card financing found at Virginia gas stations; devices ‘placed within the last 24 hours’

SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. – Authorities are warning motorists that a device was found at a gas station in Spotsylvania County on Friday morning.

The credit card skimmer was removed from pump 7 at the Valero FasMart at 5022 Plank Road just after 11:15 a.m., according to Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office officials.

“It was reported that the skimmer was installed within the last 24 hours,” deputies said. “All the other pumps were checked and no other device was found.”

Officials urged anyone who fills up at that pump to contact their bank or credit card issuer to “avoid a credit/debt adjustment.”

Customers who used the pump and find any fraudulent activity on their accounts should call the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office at 540-582-7115.

In addition, anyone who saw “suspicious activity on the pump” or has information about how the device was found is also asked to contact the police office.
