Gas stations in Door and Kewaunee county are fighting back against credit card skimmers. Two reported cases of active skimming machines were found in Kewaunee County at undisclosed gas stations last Thursday according to the Kewaunee County Sheriff Department. Local gas station owners are jumping at the opportunity to implement a new and effective system to prevent future skimmer machines. Jandu Petroleum owner Parv Jandu says his stations were unscathed by the recent skimming incident, giving him reason to take action for the future.
Preventative seals will be applied to all seven gas stations owned by Jandu, covering over 50 pumps in Door and Kewaunee County. The Sheriff’s Department advises all consumers to pay inside at the service counter until all gas stations in the county are properly evaluated for credit card skimming devices.
