Skimmer found on Cedar Rapids gas pump

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -
Cedar Rapids Police are putting out a warning, after a skimming device is found inside a gas pump at the FastFuel on Blairs Ferry Rd NE inCedar Rapids. 
Those devices can gain access to debit or credit card information, when the card is inserted in a card reader. 
Some convenience stores use security seal tape on gas pumps, so you can see if the tape has been broken not to use the pump and report it.
The Police Department wants to remind you to frequently check bank statements for unauthorized transactions.
They also say typically, skimmers are set up on pumps furthest away from the front door of a business. 
On ATMs, if the card reader looks loose, mismatched, or just off, it could be a skimming device.
