The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department is asking drivers to pay for their gasoline at the service counter and for owners to open up their fuel pumps after two credit card skimming devices were found in the area. Shortly after noon Thursday, an unidentified Kewaunee County gas station contacted the Sheriff’s Department about the devices after a routine check of the pumps. The gas station owners suggested the devices were most likely installed earlier that morning. Sheriff Matt Joski says it is not important where these devices were found, but rather how many more are still undiscovered.
The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department has contacted all gas station owners in the area and the Door County Sheriff’s Department to keep a look out for other possible cases of skimming devices. Joski says drivers should check their credit and debit card receipts for fraudulent activity.
