Weights and Measures Alerts FUELIowa of Rise in Skimming Devices


The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s Bureau of Weights and Measures asked FUELIowa to alert retailers of a rise in skimming devices.  Recently, Weights and Measures inspectors uncovered five blue-tooth capable skimming devices placed in-line with the wiring of the card reader inside of the dispensers.  Last year, Weights and Measures inspections uncovered approximately a dozen skimming devices. 
FUELIowa members are encouraged to remain diligent in the security measures taken at their stores. Routine inspection, security tape, and changing out locks are three of the more common means being used by members to prevent skimmers from being placed in dispensers. Members that uncover a device they suspect to be a skimmer are encouraged to contact the FUELIowa staff or the Iowa Weights and Measure’s Bureau before disconnecting the device. In many cases, Weights and Measures staff have more field experience with skimming devices and can assist law enforcement when a device is discovered.
