Card-skimming devices found on south La. gas pumps - Watch WAFB for details

Six people were arrested in southeast Louisiana after being linked to an elaborate skimming and fraud scheme, according to authorities.

Investigators in Jefferson Parish believe the suspect unlocked gas pumps and attached skimming devices to the electronic circuitry in order to capture information necessary to produce counterfeit gas, credit and gift cards.

A cyber securities expert warns consumers to use credit cards instead of debit cards at gas pumps and believes gas stations now have an obligation to protect their customers.
