Protect yourself against credit card skimming

(WMC) -

Thieves can steal your credit card information by skimming cards. There are ways to spot it, avoid it and deal with it.

To spot it, be on the lookout for odd-looking card readers that stick out, or maybe crudely attached to a gas pump.

To avoid it, keep your cards in sight and never let anyone leave your presence with your card.

The best way to deal with skimming is to call the police and your bank and all credit bureaus immediately when your identity or credit card is stolen.
