In coordination with National Weights and Measures Week March 1-7, the Cambridge Weights & Measures Department is issuing a special Consumer Alert on recent problems nationally with credit card skimming and identity theft at the gas pump. Credit card skimmers have been found in fuel dispensers across the nation and your personal information can be stolen with the swipe of your card. Credit card skimmers cannot be seen from outside the pump. The Weights & Measures Department conducts regular inspections of Cambridge gas pumps but recommends awareness. If a pump does not look right, notify the station clerk; use pumps closer to the station; monitor bank accounts regularly.
