A technician reported Tuesday he had located what appeared to be an electronic skimming device installed in a pump at the Buy 2 76 gas station located at 1720 N. Highway 99W.

Employees reported credit/debit card reader malfunctions on the pump for about 90 days. At this time, it is unknown whether any credit/debit card information has been compromised or if the installation of the device caused the card reader to malfunction. Capt. Tim Symons of the McMinnville police said there is no suspect information at this time.

McMinnville police suggest that customers check their bank and/or credit card statement for any abnormalities if gas has been purchased gasoline from this location in the past 90 days.

For information, call the police at 503-434-7307.

The reader was on the pump for 3 months before anyone noticed?....Hmmm.....

Is this the 76 station located across the street from Bank of America, or the one closer to Roth's?

TTT

This is the station located by DMV next to Wendy's.

1. A device was installed and nobody noticed?
2. It's been "malfunctioning" for 90 days and service wasn't called?

I'm sorry but somebody at this station is responsible for these actions.

I bought gas with my card at this station 2 days before the skimmer was found.

I will never purchase gasoline at this station again.

Same here. Very annoying. Three months is inexcusable.
Fortunately I used a gas card, not a Visa or debit card.
Maybe someone should be paying closer attention over there.

listen*up

all pumps should be checked at the start and close of every shift period!that skimmer should be checked for prints,if it was inside the housing of the pump i'd be looking at who had keys to access it!
