The New York State Police Horseheads is currently investigating a credit card skimming device located at the Byrne Dairy, 1964 Grand Central Avenue in town of Horseheads. A credit card skimmer obtains an individual’s credit card data and forwards the information to the suspect, who can then make fraudulent purchases. When one of these devices is located, traditionally, more devices are found within gas pumps in the area.
Customers who have recently purchased gasoline at this Byrne Dairy should check their credit card account to ensure no fraudulent purchases have been made on the account. Please use caution when paying for gas at the pump using a credit card by ensuring that the pump’s integrity tape is intact or pay inside.
If a skimming device is located, please contact the New York State Police in Horseheads at 607-739-8797.
