Cape Coral will discuss measure to crack down on skimmers

Cape Coral city officials are discussing an ordinance Monday that will address an increase in gas skimmers.

The anti-skimmer ordinance would require gas stations to install one of three devices to protect your information at the pumps:

  • A system that shuts off if the pump is tampered with
  • A device that encrypts credit card information
  • A system that would only give the gas station your information

WINK News reporter Andrea Henderson was live in Cape Coral to break down the proposal. Watch the full segment above.
