Credit card skimmer found at Boynton Beach gas station

CHASE DOWN THE WOULD-BE THIEVES SHAYNE? SHAYNE: WE DO THIS ALL THE TIME

PULL UP TO THE GAS PUMP TO FILL UP THE TANK WE GET OUT AND PULL OUT OUR CREDIT CARD BUT DO YOU EVER STOP TO THINK THERE MAY BE A CREDIT CARD SKIMMER THERE READY TO STEAL YOUR INFORMATION? THAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED RIGHT HERE LAST NIGHT, BUT THE ASSISTANT MANAGER STEPPED IN SO YOU CAUGHT THEM IN THE ACT? >> OH YEAH, I CAUGHT THEM RIGHT IN THE ACT, RED HANDED SHAYNE: NOT THE WAY DEVIN BUTTERFIELD, AN ASSISTANT MANAGER AT THIS BP IN BOYNTON BEACH, THOUGHT HIS SHIFT WAS GOING TO END WEDNESDAY NIGHT

>> THE SEAL WAS FLAPPING IN THE WIND, SO I LOOK OVER AND I PEEP GAME AND WAS LIKE, OK, SOMETHING IS OFF HERE SHAYNE: AND IT WAS DEVIN SAYS TWO MEN SHOWED UP AT THE PUMP IN WHAT LOOKED LIKE A GRAY TAHOE WITH TINTED WINDOWS, AND STAYED THERE FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES HE SAID HE KNEW SOMETHING WAS FISHY >> WHEN I WALKED UP AND I SAID, HEY, WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING, AND THEY GUY DIDN’T HAVE NOTHING TO SAY

HE LOOKED STARTLED, LIKE I CAUGHT HIM DOING SOMETHING, AND THEN I WENT AND I TOUCHED THIS AND THIS JUST STARTED OPENING AND THAT IS WHEN I WAS LIKE, OH, YOU GUYS ARE UP TO NO GOOD SHAYNE: POLICE SAY THE MEN HAD JUST PLACED THIS SKIMMER, USED TO STEAL CREDIT CARD INFORMATION, AT THE PUMP WITH THE NUMBER SIX WRITTEN ON THE SIDE, WHICH MEANS THERE MAY BE MORE ATTACHED TO OTHER GAS PUMPS OR ATM’S IN THE AREA DEVIN SAYS THE MEN JUMPED IN THEIR SUV AND TOOK OFF BUT YOU CHASED AFTER THEM? >> I TRIED TO CHASE AFTER THEM BUT I WAS IN SANDALS [LAUGHTER] I CAN ONLY GO SO FAR

>> THEY SCARE ME I DON’T WANT ME INFORMATION STOLEN I ACTUALLY PAY INSIDE VERY OFTEN WITH A CREDIT CARD INSTEAD OF ON THIS YOU SEE IT ON TV ALL THE TIME >> I SEE IT IN THE NEWSPAPER ALL THE TIME

IT’S MY BIGGEST FEAR >> I’M A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE NOW >> IT CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE YOU JUST HAVE TO BE CAREFUL AND DO YOU MAINTENANCE ON YOUR PUMPS REGULARLY I DID NOT EXPECT IT TO HAPPEN LIKE THAT, DEFINITELY NOT LIKE THAT

CATCHING THEM IN THE ACT? THAT’S CRAZY SHAYNE: DEVIN SAYS IF YOU SEE THIS SEAL TAMPERED WITH OR BROKEN OR FLYING IN THE WIND, THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THE GAS PUMP MAY HAVE A SKIMMER IN IT STAY AWAY AND TELL THE MANAGER HE ALSO SAYS POLICE ARE GOING OVER SURVEILLANCE VIDEO TO TRY AND IDENTIFY THE CRO
