Motorists are being warned that skimming devices have been found at gas stations in the area.
Cases in which skimming devices have been used to obtain credit card information form gas pumps in the Town of Philipstown and the Town of Southeast are being investigated by the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department.
"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," the sheriff's office said. "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."
The names of the gas stations where the devices were discovered have not been released.
