Another credit card skimmer has been found in the state.

It was found inside a pump at the Citgo station on Jackson Road in Ann Arbor.

Department of Agriculture investigators have removed 43 of them from stations around Michigan since August.

Skimmers are devices planted inside credit card readers at gas stations that can steal the card's information.

There's no way to tell a skimmer is inside the pump unless you open it up, so the best way to protect yourself is to pay inside and monitor your bank and credit card statements.
