How to protect your money from card skimmers this holiday season

ABC 30

MADERA, Calif. (KFSN) -- As customers swipe away while shopping this holiday season, Madera police are warning about the new strategies that thieves are using to steal bank information.

What might look like an ordinary checkout stand could actually be a card-skimming device intended to steal your bank card information.

Police say that criminals work in teams to distract employees while installing card skimming devices at gas stations, stores, and even banks.

Earlier this year, suspects were caught on camera as they worked together to install a skimmer at Rancho San Miguel Market.
