Pump switching: Police warn drivers of growing scam at gas stations

COLLIDING WITH A SCHOOL BUS IN LOGAN. >> BUT THE BIG STORY ON ACTION NEWS AT NOON IS POLICE IN MONTGOMERY COUNTY TRYING TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC FROM A NEW THREAT AT LOCAL GAS STATIONS. >> INVESTIGATORS IN LOWER MERION SAY THIS SO-CALLED PUMP SWITCHING SCAM IS BECOMING A GROWING PROBLEM AND THEY WANT TO

KEEP YOU FROM BECOMING THE NEXT VICTIM. ACTION NEWS REPORTER CAROLINE GOGGIN IS LIVE FOR US IN LOWER MERION WITH THE DETAILS ON JUST HOW THIS SCAM WORKS. >> CAROLINE. >> WELL, JOHN AND SARAH, POLICE HERE IN LOWER MERION TOWNSHIP CALL THIS PUMP SWITCHING A NUISANCE CRIME. THEY SAY IT

HAPPENS FROM TIME TO TIME AND RIGHT NOW THEY’RE NOTICING AN UPTICK, ESPECIALLY ALONG CITY AVE, WHERE SOME DRIVERS HAVE FALLEN VICTIM TO THIS SCAM. >> SO THE WAY THAT IT WORKS IS THEY’LL THEY’LL TAKE THE PUMP OUT OF YOUR HAND OR OFFER TO TAKE IT OUT OF YOUR HAND AND PUT

IT AWAY FOR YOU. AND THEN THEY’LL KEEP THE PUMP OPEN. AND YOUR CREDIT CARD WAS IN THERE WHEN YOU SWIPED IT. THE NEXT CARS THAT COME THROUGH, THEY’LL WALK UP AND SAY, HEY, I’LL PUMP YOUR GAS, GIVE ME $20, I’LL FILL YOU UP. RIGHT? AND SO THE NEXT

PERSON THROUGH, IF THEY GIVE HIM $20 CASH, THEY JUST CHARGE IT OFF UNTIL THE PUMP STOPS WORKING. OR YOUR CREDIT CARD FILLS UP. >> NOW, POLICE TELL US THE SUSPECT IN THESE CASES WILL THEN POCKET THE CASH THEY MAKE AND LEAVE THE STATION. ACCORDING TO POLICE, MOST VICTIMS DON’T

REALIZE THE CRIME HAS HAPPENED FOR DAYS OR EVEN WEEKS AFTER THE INCIDENT, WHICH MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT TO FIND AND PROSECUTE THE OFFENDER . SO THEY’RE WARNING PEOPLE, UNLESS YOU’RE IN NEW JERSEY, YOU SHOULD BE THE ONLY PERSON HANDLING YOUR GAS PUMP. THEY SAY ONCE YOU’RE DONE FILLING YOUR

TANK, PUT THE NOZZLE AWAY. TERMINATE THE TRANSACTION ON THE MACHINE AND MAKE SURE TO GET A RECEIPT. BUT POLICE TELL US, IF YOU DO FEEL THAT YOU’VE FALLEN VICTIM TO THIS CRIME, THEY SAY PULL TO A SAFE AREA OF THE GAS STATION AND CALL 911. AND REGARDS TO THIS RECENT UPTICK IN

THIS PUMP SWITCHING, POLICE SAY THEY HAVE IDENTIFIED AT LEAST ONE SUSPECT THEY THINK MAY BE INVOLVED. AND THEY SAY THAT PERSON HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN SIMILAR INCIDENTS IN THE PAST. WE ARE LIVE IN LOWER MERION TOWNSHIP. I’M CAROLINE GOGGIN, CHANNEL SIX ACTION

  1. do not use credit card on the gas pump use cash don't forget

  2. Gas Station Jockeys died out when Gas Pumps became SELF SERVE.

  3. if you get scammed by this, it's because you are a complete moron. Why would you hand the nozzle to anyone, you should be standing 2 feet from the pump. hang back on the pump and get your receipt.

  4. A nuisance crime ?? We call them Biden voters where I come from !!

  5. Someone that stupid should get ripped off. 😂

  6. A. I ALWAYS go into the station and pay, usually with cash. B. I NEVER let anyone approach me FOR ANY REASON when I'm preoccupied by either pumping gas or putting groceries in my car.

  7. Anyone ignorant enough to fall for something this stupid truly deserves to have their credit card bill maxed out. If they weren’t too lazy to hang up their own fuel nozzle or pump their own fuel they wouldn’t expose themselves to this scam.

  8. Wow, we sure have a lot of dummies out there. 🙄

  9. Uhh ok who can be that dumb?

  10. Sorry, if you're that slow you deserve to buy other people gasoline.

  11. People can't really be this stupid. If they are then they deserve to be "scammed"

  12. Everyone who is caught out by this scam 100% deserves it.

    How fkin lazy do you have to be to let some random stranger put the filler back into the pump!?

  13. This seems like thr obvious, like a few years ago they had to warn people about making sure to finish the transaction and a click the button to get a receipt or not but now this just seems stupid af.

  14. why do we have to tell people this? do they not know how things work? Why is there such a basic lack of education from parents?

  15. Why aren’t the service station attendant/employees warning these people off.

  16. In NJ, it is illegal to pump your own gas; an employee of the gas station must pump the gas. That opens a new possibility…the gas jockey doesn't fully reinsert the nozzle back into the pump and then signals his buddy to drive up and fills his buddy's gas tank at your expense.

  17. Pay cash and pump your own gas!!!

  18. On the other hand… dense people need punishment.

  19. My pump switching, I was thinking of the scam that they pulled off about 20 years ago where they would take the gas nozzle from one side of the pump and plug it into the rest on the other side of the pump and swap the nozzles so that when somebody came up and put their credit card in the pump the person on the opposite side of the pump would pump the gas on that person's credit card.
