Skimming and Payments Security

Approximately 39 million Americans fill-up every day and fuel dispensers have become one of many targets for thieves looking to steal credit and debit card information by "skimming," an aggressive tactic used to illegally obtain consumer card data for fraudulent purposes.

Since 2008, NACS and Conexxus have offered convenience and fuel retailers the resources and tools they need to proactively initiate and maintain effective payment security procedures that help reduce the occurrence of skimming.
