East Texas Professional Credit Union strongly encourages all members to pay with an attendant for all gas transactions. The use of skimmers is on the rise and fraudsters continue to target gas pumps. Skimmers are no longer only located on the outside of the pump, so recognizing an affected pump is difficult. Your risk of information theft from a skimmer can be greatly reduced when you pay an attendant inside rather than paying with your card at the pump.
