A partnership program between the Plymouth Police Department and local businesses, SkimStop helps prevent theft of credit card information at gasoline station pumps.

Residents gain consumer confidence through SkimStop, knowing that their credit card information is safe at participating Plymouth gas stations.

SkimStop program helps to prevent credit card theftHow Does Skimming Work?
Skimming is a method of stealing personal identification. In most cases, criminals place small devices inside or outside of credit card terminals at gas station pumps to capture data each time a victim swipes his or her credit card.

After retrieving the names and card numbers from the pumps, perpetrators commonly sell the data or use re-encoder devices to create new fraudulent cards using the victims’ credit card numbers.

For more information about credit card skimmers, visit the Minnesota Department of Commerce website.

Participation Requirements
To participate in SkimStop, a gas station must:

  • Have its pumps inspected by the Plymouth Police Department to look for signs of tampering or existing credit card skimmers.
  • Place tamper proof tape over the panel or door that provides access to the credit card machine at each pump. The tape shows “void” if it has been tampered with in any way.
  • Complete 24-hour inspections of each pump to ensure the tape has not been compromised and keep an ongoing log of the checks. Officers from the Plymouth Police Department will audit the logs annually.
