Skimmer Scanner

Fuel Pump Skimmers can steal your Credit or Debit Card information without you ever suspecting. This app uses your phone’s Bluetooth radio to detect a common radio component in modern fuel pump skimmers (HC-05) and warn you if you’re about to get scammed.

If you happen to detect a device, please don’t attempt to remove it yourself and let the station attendant know. Also, leave a review here! We’d love to see where these things are popping up.

Note: The effective range of this app varies by phone and by skimmer. For best results, hold your phone close to the gas pump. Also, please keep in mind that failure to detect an HC-05 based device does not guarantee there is no skimmer present. There’s always a risk to sticking your card in a strange machine.
