Skimmer Scanner – save your bank account from skimming scams [FREEWARE]

Have you heard of fuel pump skimmers? They’re these completely garbage devices that attach to fuel pumps so when you pay for you gas, your credit card information is stolen so that thieves can then steal your money. It’s actually the worst. Skimmer Scanner will help you spot those machines before you lose your cash.

This scanner works with your phone’s Bluetooth to detect the radio component in the scanners to let you know if the pump has been compromised. It’s just that simple. If it does come up, don’t try to remove it, alert the attendant so that they can have someone take care of it.

This may not stop you from getting taken by one of these nasty gadgets, they’re getting better everyday, but you never know, it might. Even though the bank will return your money if you are caught by one of these, it is a huge hassle and because of the way the scammers work, they don’t use your information right away, they can sit on it for weeks or even months, it is very hard to track where the breech happened. Install this free app and get that extra layer of protection.
