‘Skimmer’ problem plagues carwash owner

PLAINVIEW, TX ― The Express Care Car Wash owner is now figuring out if his customers' credit card information has been compromised.

PLAINVIEW, TX ― A carwash owner is trying to figure out if "skimming" occurred at his business and whether his customers' credit card information has been compromised, the Plainview Herald reported.

The Dec. 3 story said "skimming" is when an object is placed on a card-reading machine, such as an ATM or pay station, allowing the user to steal debit and credit card information.

Express Care Car Wash owner Newt Harrell said in the story, “We are aware there’s been a situation potentially, but we don’t know what, we’re working on it.” Harrell said he has hired a forensic investigator to look into the matter and his financial system is now being scanned on a daily basis to check for anything unusual.

Emergency Credit Card Processing

“We will get to the bottom of it and spending money we don’t have to do so,” Harrell said in the story. “What’s hurtful, though, is I feel like people look at us as if we did something to them. It is something foreign, not us. We would never knowingly do anything to hurt anybody.”
