Credit card skimmer found at north Austin Seven Eleven


AUSTIN (KXAN) — A credit card skimmer was located at a gas station in north Austin Friday, according to a press release from the Texas Department of Agriculture.

The skimmer was reported at a Seven Eleven at 14730 North Interstate Highway 35. 

The TDA released a few tips drivers should consider to avoid skimmers when paying at a gas pump:

  • Try to use the pump closest to the storefront and insight of store employees.
  • Before paying, check for unusual Bluetooth signals that contain an ID of a string of numbers and letters.
  • Make sure the security tape on the pump is unbroken.
  • The safest thing to do is pay for the gas inside the store.
  • Always save the receipt and monitor your bank statements.
  • Contact the Texas Department of Agriculture at 1-800-TELL-TDA
