The department gave the following tips to protect yourself from these pesky devices:

  • Use a credit card rather than a debit card because they have better protection from fraud.

  • Pay with the cashier when possible.

  • Tug on the card reader before inserting your card.

  • Check on the tamper-evident sticker and don’t use the pump if the sticker is broken.
