After 7-Eleven customers discovered fraudulent charges on their accounts after using a gas pump at a location off of Interstate 35, the Texas Department of Agriculture is warning about a credit card skimmer there.

After they were alerted about the skimmer, the Austin Police Department responded and removed the skimmer device from the location at 7114 North I-35.

Credit card skimmer found at South Austin gas station

The TDA has found three skimmer devices in the past month. The other two devices were found during routine inspections that occur at over 400,000 fuel pumps state-wide.

If you’re suspicious of a credit card scanner, the TDA encourages you to either move to another pump or pay inside. If you notice false charges on your account, contact your financial institution immediately.
