Re: What could possibly...?

I always check for skimmers on the gas pumps - in case you haven't figured it out already, I'm a bit on the paranoid side - and I've turned a couple of them over to the police.

In the places I've lived the most common place for a skimmer was *inside* the pump, wired to the pump's own mag stripe reader. Thieves would either get the help of an insider at the station, or have duplicate keys to open the access doors.
