According to the National Association for Convenience Stores, 37 million Americans refuel every day and of them, 29 million pay for fuel with a credit or debit card.

Here are a few tips that will reduce your risk at the pump:

  • Pay in cash or use a credit card inside the store
  • Check for security tape on pump locks or seams indicating the pump has been inspected
  • Check to make sure the gas pump dispenser cabinet is closed and does not appear to have been tampered with
  • Use a gas pump closer to the front of the store
  • Use a credit card chip reader if it is available

Consumers who suspect that a gas pump has been tampered with should contact the gas station manager and file a complaint with FDACS. You can file a complaint online or by calling 1-800-HELP-FLA (435-7352) or, for Spanish speakers, 1-800-FL-AYUDA (352-9832).
