Avoid Skimmers at the Pump
Skimmers are illegal card readers attached to payment terminals — like gas pumps — that grab data off a credit or debit card’s magnetic stripe without your knowledge. Criminals sell the stolen data or use it to buy things online. You won’t know your information has been stolen until you get your statement or an overdraft notice.
Skimmers are nothing new, but technology has made them smaller and harder to find. Sometimes, they’re even hidden inside a gas pump. Here are tips to help you avoid a skimmer when you gas up:
- Make sure the gas pump panel is closed and doesn’t show signs of tampering.
- Take a good look at the card reader itself. Does it look different than other readers at the station?
- If you use a debit card at the pump, run it as a credit card instead of entering a PIN.
- Monitor your credit card and bank accounts regularly to spot unauthorized charges.
- If you’re really concerned about skimmers, you can pay inside rather than at the pump. Another option is to use a gas pump near the front of the store.
If your credit card has been compromised, report it to your bank or card issuer. Federal law limits your liability if your credit, ATM, or debit card is lost or stolen, but your liability may depend on how quickly you report the loss or theft.
Consider placing a fraud alert or a credit freeze on your credit report. This requires businesses to confirm your identity before approving applications in your name.

How Long Do You Need to Keep All This Financial Paperwork?
With tax season right around the corner, you’ll likely find yourself wondering how long you should keep some of your paperwork. Well, here’s a handy primer.
When you no longer need any of the documents listed below make sure to dispose of them properly by shredding to keep personal information confidential.
2 months to a year
Credit Card receipts/ statements and pay check stubs are information that should be kept up to a year.
Receipts and statements should be kept to review with your monthly statements, if they are correct, shred the receipts. Exceptions include: keeping receipts if you’re disputing a bill, covering a warranty or possibly returning an item.
With pay stubs, make sure they match your annual W-2 when received, then shred the stubs. If the information doesn’t match, notify your employer.
