A rash of debit card fraud apparently hit people filling up outside at Algoma convenience stores last week. According to the Algoma Police Department multiple debit transactions were scammed. Algoma Police Chief Randy Remiker says thousands of dollars of fraud charges have been tracked at this point and consumers should be careful when using their debit cards.
Chief Remiker also recommends that credit card purchases for gas be done inside the convenience store to be safe. He asks that anyone with any information regarding the silver SUV and two male suspects should contact the Algoma Police Department immediately. Neither owners of the three gas stations in Algoma, Parv Jandu and Jim Graf believe their pumps were tampered. Jandu did say he reported an ATM theft on March 9. No further details are available at this time as the investigation contines.
