The Niagara County Sheriff is warning Western New Yorkers about credit card skimming.

Skimmers are small devices, installed on gas pumps, self-checkout devices, or even at the ATM.

They scan your credit card data, which thieves then have access to for their personal use.

A number of these cases have been reported throughout Niagara County.  The sheriff's office has not said where this happened.

If you think you've fallen victim to a skimmer, call police.
