Austin police have removed a credit card skimmer from a gas station fuel pump in North Austin at the intersection of North MoPac Boulevard (Loop 1) and Duval Road.
According to the Texas Department of Agriculture, authorities found the device, which is used to record credit card information, on a fuel pump in the 12000 block of MoPac on Thursday.
After police removed the device, they checked other pumps at the station and found no additional skimmers.
Authorities said the fuel station owners were unaware that the skimmer was there and they do not face any charges.
The Department of Agriculture looks for skimmers during routine inspections of more than 400,000 fuel pumps across Texas.
Round Rock police issued a warning about such scammers being used in the area earlier in May.
If you have seen a skimmer or something suspicious at a pump, call the Department of Agriculture at 800-TELL-TDA.
