Skimmers are more common than I thought after seeing this long list of gas stations.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has a program called “Operation Skimmer Sweep” and they found many gas stations all around us who had skimmers at their pumps. From September 14-16 they visited 440 gas stations and removed 31 skimmers from over 13,600 gas pumps. I didn’t realize how many there were in Hillsborough County ALONE.
This is what HCSO’s Sheriff Chad Chronister said about the skimmers found:
“At this time, we do not believe anybody’s personal information was compromised. If you believe you may have been compromised, I urge you to call our non-emergency number at (813) 247-8200 or you can even file a report online using our online reporting system found at www.teamhcso.com.”
