Eyeing credit card use at the pumps

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Hello all,

I know this is true because it did happen to me last week. From now on I will always press the CLEAR button at the pump after I am done, or better still I will not use the machine's at the pumps, I will go inside.

Jim just told me about something that happened to one of his coworkers. She used her credit/debit card to purchase gas at the pump (like most of us do).

She received her receipt like normal. However, when she checked her statement, there were 2 $50 charges added in addition to her purchase. Upon investigation, she found out that because she did not press the
'CLEAR' but ton on the pump, the employee inside the store was able to use her card to purchase his/her own gas! To keep this from happening, after you get your receipt, you must press the 'CLEAR' button or your information will be stored until the next customer inserts their card.
Be sure to tell all your friends/family so that this doesn't happen to them!

from a friend.
