Credit Card Skimming - anyone had a problem

Ive just had some fraud activity identifed with my debit card, I have suspicions its been skimmed at a local petrol garage, anyone use the shell garages at st leonards or picket post near ringwood, if so have you had any problems, take a look at your bank statement and look for any unusual activity, it usually starts off with a small order amount being taken as a test and then larger amounts. I would be interested in hearing if anyone has a problem and have used those garages or others in this area. The one I used the chip and pin carrd reader wasn't working so I had to sign for a transaction.

There was a chap doing exactly that a while ago at the old snax garage on the bishopstoke road out of eastleigh. Should be straightforward for them to trace though.

I got caught only last week

Give them their due, the HSBC identified all the payments as fraudulent and stopped them. They phoned me last Saturday to tell me what had happened, and that they were sending me a new card.

Strangely I hadn't used my card for a few months, then Friday night somebody used it to try joining an online dating agency in the states, then tried to buy a load of electronics, also in the states.

When I was travelling for work up to 3yrs ago, I used my card in some very dodgy parts of the world nearly every week and didn't get caught.

I'll never know how the info leaked out, or when.

A couple of stations in Bournemouth area had this a year back - Southbourne TOTAl I think was the main one. I'd put money on the same crew if it is the picket post etc stations that are picking up the details....

Seems like a common occurrence. In my case it was the shell garage in st leonards the chip and pin machine was taken offline and they were using a swipe machine instead, it's been replaced now. I feel it's an inside job or a crew pretending to do maintenance on the readers.

Well, apart from him wanting a date and having a keen interest in electronics (Surveillance devices?), you don't have much to go on...

Bringing this back up with some useful info ... I was looking for another more recent thread but can't find it. Copy and paste below - another thing to watch out for!

---

There is a new trick that a friend of mine was caught with

Goes to petrol station fills up puts card into machine

Petrol assistant asks for PIN NUmber to be entered - he entered it
Assistant then says "Oh sorry" theres an error - and asks you to rekey it

What has happened is that he didn't put the amount in for the fuel, you then key in you pin which shows up on the screen as keyed info (should have been fuel amount)

He then wipes number (Has now your pin) asks for you to rekey, and it goes through

He has the reciept with your Card number on it AND now has the pin

BEWARE
