Breakfast Meeting: Hot Valuation Issues in Estate Planning

#FraudFriday Recently, the LCSO has investigated a report of a skimming device detected at a local gas station in #Loudoun. In light of this incident we would like to share some best practices courtesy of the Federal Trade Commission to help customers and keep safe from skimmers.

-Make pump inspection part of the daily routine for employees.

-Use and track pump security seals. These large labels are adhered to the pump, near the credit card reader. If the pump panel is opened, the label will read "void," which means the machine has been tampered with.

-Log the serial numbers on the seals. Thieves can use counterfeit security stickers, so make sure serial numbers on the seals match your station's master list.

-Look for warped or protruding surfaces. For example, card readers and PIN pads not flush with the pump’s door panel are a warning sign.

-Monitor your credit card statements monthly.

If you have any questions or if you were a victim of this crime, please contact the LCSO at sheriff.loudoun.gov/reportonline or call 703-777-1021.
