Credit card skimmer found at Rio Rancho gas station

RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – Crooks are running a credit card scam in the metro area you need to watch for.

Rio Rancho police say a skimmer was found attached to the credit card reader on a pump at a Giant gas station on 528.

When people swipe their cards on a device with a skimmer, it grabs information that can let thieves run up charges on victims’ credit cards.

Detectives from Santa Fe and Rio Rancho are now working together after credit card skimmers were found in both cities.
