Credit Card Skimmers & How to Spot Them at Gas Stations

Do you know how to spot credit card skimmers at gas stations?

Do you know how to spot credit card skimmers at gas stations?

Thieves are finding more ways than ever to steal credit card information. One of the most common methods targets gas station customers, specifically those paying at the pump with a credit card. Hard to spot, the method is nearly undetectable. Luckily we here at Lancaster Nissan can help you find a possible threat to your finances and avoid it.

Credit card skimmers have become increasingly popular over the years. Mainly used at gas stations, they’re hard to spot and the thief isn’t likely to be caught installing it. A small device, it can be installed in less than a minute.

Once installed, the credit card skimmer will collect customer’s credit card information if they pay at the pump. After a few days of collecting, the thief will return and remove the device as quickly as it was installed.

The most obvious sign that there may be a skimmer at the pump is a broken state inspector’s seal. If the seal looks like it was tampered with, report it to the attendant immediately.

To further protect yourself, try to use the innermost pumps, the ones in the attendant’s line of sight, as the outer pumps are common targets.

2017 Nissan JUKE Goes Green

With how incredible the 2015 Nissan JUKE is, we cannot wait to see the 2017 Nissan JUKE!

With how incredible the 2015 Nissan JUKE is, we cannot wait to see the 2017 Nissan JUKE!

The Nissan JUKE is one of the most uniquely styled crossovers on the market and the small crossover is about to inspire disbelief yet again. The first generation Nissan JUKE kicked off Nissan’s crossover sales and now, with the second generation on the way, it’s looking for a new way to beat the competition. The latest rumor on the mill is that the 2017 Nissan JUKE will receive an even greener powertrain.

The Japanese automaker is keeping their lips sealed but a green powertrain certainly isn’t unlikely. The Nissan LEAF®, the most popular electric vehicle in the world, boasts a battery pack and electric motor that could power the Nissan JUKE.

The Nissan JUKE currently stands on its own tires with a 1.6L turbocharged engine that packs 217 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. The Nissan LEAF®’s powertrain is comparable with 107 hp and 187 lb-ft of torque. Either way, the 2017 Nissan JUKE will likely have a variety of engines to choose from.

Still, Nissan is a tricky automaker to decipher. For now, they seem to be keeping everything to themselves when it comes to the second generation Nissan JUKE.

We here at Lancaster Nissan of Lancaster, PA can’t wait to see just what the Nissan JUKE has in store for us!
