Police find, remove skimmer from Brunswick gas pump

BRUNSWICK, OH (WOIO) - The Medina County Auditor's Office has a warning for anyone who filled up with gas in Brunswick recently.

A worker found a credit card skimmer on one of the gas pumps at the Cenco Station on Center Road. Police came out and removed it.

Here's how you can protect yourself from becoming a victim of a card skimmer:

  • First, use a credit card, instead of a debit card, because you are not liable for any fraudulent charges.
  • Always use the gas pumps within the clerk's line of sight.
  • And make sure you check your credit card statements for any purchases you did not make.
