Credit card ‘skimmers’ found on Pinedale area, investigation ongoing
PINEDALE, WYO – Beginning Monday, the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office has been fielding calls from citizens stating they have discovered fraudulent charges on their credit or debit cards.
During the course of the investigation it appears that multiple credit card readers in the Pinedale area were compromised. The credit card readers had “skimmers” attached to the reader that downloaded credit/debit card information and transferred it to remote locations.
The investigation is ongoing, but the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office is urging the community to monitor their credit card and debit card activity daily, and report any fraudulent transactions to their bank and law enforcement.
