Fuel Dispenser Skimmer Alert

This year Arizona has been hit with a wave of credit card skimmers in fuel dispensers.  Compared to 11 skimmers found in 2015, the Weights and Measures Services Division of the Department of Agriculture has found over 60 skimmers through September of 2016.

Last week, skimmers were found at the following locations:

  • Houghton Rd and Speedway, Tucson
  • 90th St and Frank Lloyd Wright, Scottsdale

Skimmers have been found at locations throughout Arizona, including Chandler, Eloy, Glendale, Kingman, Peoria, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Surprise, Tempe, Tucson and Yuma.  Click here to access a list of the crossroads of all skimmers found in 2016.

APMA will be forwarding skimmer updates to the membership as the Weights and Measures Services Division makes it available.

Weights and Measures has offered to provide training on where and what to look for in your fuel dispensers.  Contact Damien DeSantiago at ddesantiago@azda.gov for more information.
