Avoiding Credit Card Skimmers
Credit card skimmers are used by criminals to obtain debit and credit card account information. The devices can be attached to ATMs or point-of-sale terminals, like card readers at a gas station. Avoid card readers that appear loose, crooked, damaged, or scratched. Use gas pumps in direct view of gas station attendants. Visit the City's Neighborhood Watch page to learn more about crime prevention.
Criminals frequently impersonate trusted people or organizations by phone or email to obtain personal information or funds. Independently validate that the request is legitimate before clicking links, sharing information, or making a payment. Visit the City's Neighborhood Watch page to learn more about crime prevention.

Stolen mail is often used to gather personal information needed to commit identity theft.
