Gas Pump Skimmers
Resources and Going Further
We hope you enjoyed reading this in-depth tear down of these scary devices. If you’d like to assist us we are curious to answer the following questions:
- What do these devices actually cost? We haven’t trolled the dark web far enough to find one.
- What types of fuel pumps do the skimmers work on? It’s unclear if this model of skimmer works across the field or if it works only with certain pump types.
- What are some other methods for detection and prevention? We brainstormed all sorts of things. In the end, it’s shocking how easy it is to open up a gas pump. The quickest prevention method we could think of was a klaxon attached to a leaf switch set to go off anytime the pump is opened. Provide all pump repair folks with ear protection and the problem of skimmers is solved.
