Petrol Pump Skimmers - Not sure if we've seen these in the UK yet...


  • Use cash in gas stations!

  • This is why we now have chip and PIN cards. The skimmer device only provides the magstripe data plus the PIN, which isn't enough to clone a card (no chip info).

    Without a physical clone of a card, the data can only be used for "card not present" transactions (i.e. on-line) and the need to supply the CVV code defeats this.
