The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department is investigating cases where skimming devices have been used to obtain credit card information form gas pumps in the Town of Philipstown and the Town of Southeast. We want to remind everyone to always be alert for skimming devices when using your credit card or debit card at any device such as a gas pump or ATM. Look for signs of damage and pull and twist on the card reader itself as the actual readers are very tough and the skimmer will pull loose in most cases. One should always monitor their Credit/Debit cards for any suspicious activity and report unauthorized use to the authorities.
As the investigation is still ongoing we are unable to give details as to the locations at this time.
