According to the Union County Sheriff’s Department, “deputies responded to the 7-11 located at 304 Unionville-Indian Trail Road in Indian Trail concerning fraud involving at least two of the gas pumps.

During routine maintenance, an employee discovered compromised integrity seals on the pump and further located unusual data ribbon cables attached to the pump’s data board. As of this writing, deputies are not aware of any credit/debit cards that might have been intercepted but encourage citizens who purchased fuel at this location over the past few days to check their credit card or bank card activity to verify recent activity.”

The 7-Eleven where the compromised credit card scanner was discovered is located at 304 Unionville Indian Trail Rd in Indian Trail, NC.
