ANDERSON Calif. - Multiple people have come forward to Action News Now to tell us they have had their credit card information stolen at the Speedway gas station on North Street in Anderson.

Beyond that, social media has been exploding with comments on the issue.

Seeing that this was becoming a large community concern in the area our reporter Spencer Joseph decided to follow the case.

That’s where we contacted Brandi Seaters who not only was a victim herself but also has friends and family who experienced the same.

“My husband, myself, my friend and her husband have all had the exact same thing happened on the same store same area and that’s the only place we have a common,“ she said. 

After contacting her bank and starting an investigation she decided to report the incidents to the Anderson police department where she learned she wasn’t alone.

“Apparently there are hundreds of reports that they said definitely do you encourage anybody that has happened to call them and let them know," she said. 

So that’s exactly what our team did, picking up the phone to contact the Anderson Police Department.

The department agreed to talk to our reporter but noted that they couldn’t say much because of the ongoing investigation.

“I can tell you that the Anderson please department is investigating this particular incident with vigor and that our interest is in protecting all the stakeholders and including all the victims,” said Sergeant Casey Day. 

Hoping to get more answers we visited the Speedway gas station where they told Action News Now that they were aware of the problem and are working very hard with the police to catch this scammer.

“We have the APD looking into it and checking all the pumps," said store employee Mike Law. “We are not the perpetrator… we are a victim of the problem just like everybody else." 

As for victims of this crime, they say it is changing their perspective on using electronic methods of payment.

“They have access to all the money I have… and it’s making us think that we’re probably going to just try to use cash as much as possible,” Seaters said. 

If you believe you are a victim first you are told to contact your bank and second, you can contact the Anderson Police Department as a part of their investigation.
