FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — A card-skimming scam is tricking victims at gas pumps. And now police say the thieves are using stolen information to buy postage stamps.
According to Fresno Police, a Kwik Serve at Shaw and West Avenues and a Shell station near Figarden Drive and Bullard Avenue were card skimming targets. With that stolen data, thieves are creating fake credit and debit cards.
“They’re using those cards at the post office and they’re buying stamps. and even the detective is not sure why or what they’re doing with those stamps,” said Lieutenant Joe Gomez of the Fresno Police Department.
The FBI and the United States Postal Service are now involved — making this a federal crime.
