Many thousand customers of Walmart had their credit card information stolen after criminals rigged the checkout lines with card skimmers.
These small unnoticeable devices scan the details of your credit card which are then sold or used by the criminals top make all sorts of charges.
The first credit card skimmer was found on May 11 at a Fort Wright, Kentucky Walmart location.
“To go inside a store like Walmart that has a lot of surveillance equipment and install a skimmer is pretty bold,” Fort Wright police chief Dan Kreinest said.
After backtracking and viewing hours of security video, police think they’ve found the two suspects who installed the credit card skimmer. They’ve released their images as seen on the grainy surveillance camera footage to the public. They’re asking locals to help identify the crooks.
This has been happening all over the nation, so be careful!
