MILLINGTON, TN- (WMC-TV) - The United States Secret Service is investigating after someone set up a credit card skimmer at a Millington gas pump. The machine may have gotten dozens of people's personal information.
A Covington police officer was the first person to tell Action News 5 of the identity theft scheme. Now, he wants to warn others to be extra careful.
Billy Norris gets gas at the RaceWay gas station in Millington very often. But last month, he found out that his debit card no longer worked.
"My bank contacted me Friday and let me know my card was declined and they would issue me a new card," said Norris.
Norris' bank canceled his card as a result of the ongoing fraud that occurred from a device he says was placed in one of the gas pumps.
It is called a credit card skimmer and it steals your bank account information.
