Canton, P.A. (WENY) - The Canton Borough Police Department has received several reports of suspicious activity on credit cards being used at gas pumps.

Police say several "skimmers" have been located om local gas pumps and in surrounding areas, and they are investigating the situation.

Police say one way to potentially avoid issues is to use your card inside at the register instead of at the pump. They also request that you maintain a close inspection of your credit card statements and report any suspicious activity to your card issuer immediately. If any fraudulent activity is found, contact the Canton Police at 570-673-5133.
