Hays Police warning residents about skimmers

Posted: Updated:
(KAKE) -

Hays Police are warning residents to take extra precaution when using an ATM after they received several reports of credit card information being stolen by a skimmer. Authorities say they have had three recent reports of stolen information.

Skimmers collect the information off the cards as they are placed into the slots and the criminals will later use the information off the cards to make illegal purchases. Police say it's important to pay attention to anything sticking out of a slot on a gas pump or ATM. 

If you have any information on someone using skimmers in Hays please contact the Hays Police Department at (785) 625-1030.
