Police began investigating it as a “Swatting” call, a false report of a serious emergency at someone else’s house so that the caller can watch the emergency response.

A credit card skimmer was found last month at the gas pump at Texaco, 516 Flower Mound Road. Police attempted to get surveillance video to find potential suspect(s), but the business’ video system was not working at the time. The detective was not able to develop any leads and the case is inactive.

FMPD offers these tips to help residents avoid being victims of credit card skimmers at gas pumps: Choose a pump close to the store; Look the pump over. If it looks like there is something new, or an attachment that doesn’t exactly match the rest of the pump, or if the seal covering the electronics cabinet appears broken, don’t use that pump and tell the clerk; Use a credit card, not a debit card; Always take a receipt; Most modern skimming devices are equipped with Bluetooth. Before you run your card, check on your smartphone for an unusual Bluetooth device with a long list of characters; When in doubt, pay inside.
