There has been an increase in gas pump skimming devices, according to the Overland Park Police Department. 

Officials say two skimming devices were found attached to the Phillips 66 near 75th and Metcalf.

The devices record the credit card numbers of customers when the customers use their card to purchase fuel. 

Overland Park police say the best way to determine whether or not you have been a victim of a credit card skimmer is to check you credit card or bank statements regularly and report any unauthorized purchases.
