Colorado Springs residents have reported having their bank accounts cleaned-out after their information was stolen from debit card skimmers. The skimmers also steal credit card information.
Tens of thousands of dollars has already been taken.
Police have now released a photo of a man they believe installed at least one of the skimmers. If you recognize him, phone CSPD at 719-444-7000.
The following gas stations have been victimized by the skimmers:
Valero/Diamond Shamrock, 8100 N. Academy
Valero/Diamond Shamrock, 1700 S. Nevada
Valero/Diamond Shamrock, Forest Hill and Garden of the Gods
Valero/Diamond Shamrock, East Woodmen and Union Blvd.
Any gas station is vulnerable to this sort of skimming. Police recommend that you check your bank account online regularly.
