BEE CAVE, Texas (KXAN) — Police are warning drivers who bought gasoline using their credit card at the Exxon next to the Hill Country Galleria in Bee Cave to immediately check their credit card statement for any unauthorized purchases.

The Bee Cave Police Department posted a photo of the two skimmers found at the gas station, located at 13006 West State Highway 71 near Ranch to Market 620, at 1:16 p.m. Tuesday.

Officers are encouraging customers who bought gas at the station within the last 48 hours to check their credit card purchases.

In October, the Travis County Sheriff’s Office issued a warning to drivers because credit card skimming had become such a rampant problem. Deputies were encouraging drivers to go inside gas stations rather than pay at the pump.
