At least one credit card skimmer was found at a gas station in North Austin.

The credit card skimmer was found at the Mini Max Food Mart #2 off of East Howard Lane on Monday, October 7, according to the Texas Department of Agriculture. The skimmer was found at pump #4 by a TDA inspector after the department had received a complaint. 

Commissioner Miller has produced a helpful video on how to avoid being skimmed.
