We would like to alert the community that skimming devices have been found on fuel pumps at several 7-Eleven locations in Stafford County. Credit card skimming involves thieves attaching devices on gas pumps, ATMs and other machines that read and gather your card information.
On 03/20/2020, an electronic credit card skimmer was found inside of a fuel pump at the 7-11 Eleven located at 910 Garrisonville Road. On the same day, another credit card skimmer was discovered inside a fuel pump at the 7-Eleven located as 25 Solomon Drive. In addition, on 03/18/2020, a skimming device was also found on a fuel pump at the 7-Eleven located at 2998 Jefferson Davis Highway.
We recommend that residents who may have used those fuel pumps check their credit card statements immediately for signs of fraudulent activity. Anyone who believes they may be a victim or has information on these incidents is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (540) 658-4400.
Please remember to file reports over the phone. Due to COVID-19 concerns, the lobby of the Ford T. Humphrey Public Safety Building is closed to visitors until further notice.
