Police Alert: Credit card skimmer discovered at Southborough gas station; other incidents in region

Southborough Police asked me to notify readers who may have been victims of a credit card skimming device discovered at the Mobile Station on Route 9 at Oak Hill Road.

The device was discovered yesterday afternoon at “pump 2”. They do not know how long it had been in place. Customers of the station may want to contact their credit card companies.

Chief Kenneth Paulhus writes that there have been similar incidents in the Metrowest area recently. So, even if you haven’t used that station recently, keep an eye on your bills and your credit status.

Here is the full statement: 


The Southborough Police Department would like to alert the public to the discovery of a credit card skimming device located on pump number two at the Mobil Gas Station, 76 Turnpike Road, at the corner of Oak Hill Road. The skimmer was observed on December 8th at approximately 3:30 p.m. during a pump inspection conducted by an outside maintenance company.

It is unknown how long the device might have been attached to the pump. The MetroWest area has been subject to many similar events in recent weeks. Anyone suspecting that their personal information has been compromised should contact their credit companies or local police department for further guidance. Persons having further information should contact the Southborough Police Detective Division at (508) 485-2121.
