LEE COUNTY, Fla.- While you fill up your gas tank, crooks could be draining your bank account.
Deputies confiscated two credit card skimmers at the circle K on Summerlin Road near the intersection of John Morris Road.
In the past two months, deputies have come across three cases of gas station skimmers in Lee County.
Doug Gaskill is a frequent customer at this Circle K. He was here the other day as deputies investigated two skimmers found hidden inside of gas pumps.
Circle K's manager called deputies after she found the skimmers hidden in pump 5 and pump 6.
Skimming is when criminals install a device in gas station pumps to steal your credit or debit card information. They can get all the numbers with the swipe of a card and your pin entry
The damage can be devastating.
In Charlotte County, 2011, one victim lost several thousand dollars because of a skimmer. And it's not just gas stations you have to worry about. August 2012, crooks attached a skimmer to a Marco Island bank ATM.
For drivers like Josh Mask. The news isn't too surprising. "I'm sure it's at more than this one, too. That's been going on for years with the skimmers," he said.
Because of that he says he only pays for gas in cold cash.
Lee county deputies now have the devices in evidence.
The Circle K gas station manager told deputies she changed the locks to all of the pumps.
