Brooksville credit card skimmers potentially obtained 342 card numbers

Brooksville, Florida -- In an update to the credit card skimmers found at a Hess Station in Brooksville, detective found that 342 credit card numbers were located on the devices. 

The skimmers were found Wednesday on pumps 1,2,7, and 8 at the Hess Gas Station at 26260 Cortez Boulevard.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office has been working with the United States Secret Service on this case and believe that the skimmers were not equipped with wireless capabilities and therefore the suspects did not obtain the credit card numbers. 

The investigation is ongoing and if you used this particular Hess gas station during this time period, please check your receipt to determine which pump you used. If you used the pumps in question, contact your financial institution to cancel the card and have a new one issued.

If you have used credit card/debit card on one of the four affected pumps during the listed times, please e-mail Detective Tony Aguiar at taguiar@hernandosheriff.org.
