Credit Card Skimming Devices Detected at Ashburn Gas Pumps

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is advising residents who purchased gas at the Exxon on Flagstaff Plaza in Ashburn to monitor their credit cards after two skimming devices were located on two gas pumps.

The two devices were located late Sunday afternoon on pump No. 3 and No. 16. It is unclear when the devices were installed. Detectives with the LCSO Financial Crimes Unit are working to identify who installed the devices.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to contact Detective C. Johnson at 703-777-1021. You may also submit a tip through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app. The Loudoun Sheriff app is available on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.

The Federal Trade Commission advises residents that 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.
