LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Imagine you put $10 worth of gas in your car using your debit card and got billed for nearly $1,000.
That's exactly what a woman who identified herself as Guadalupe claims happened to her at a Valley gas station. The woman, who emailed The Rant, said no one will help her.
FOX5 on Monday spoke with a credit expert about the situation. He said it was likely caused by a glitch at the gas station.
Guadalupe said her debit card was charged $75 13 times on Friday, and because she's a single mother who's already struggling to make ends meet, the bill has her in financial jeopardy.
Harry Jacobs, chief executive officer of Credit Restoration of Nevada, said he would expect the gas station to take responsibility and fix the error.
Jacobs also said the woman's story is a reminder that card skimming is prevalent at the gas pump and using your debit card does present risks.
"They basically attach something into the machine which reads the back of your card, PIN, address, all that we talked about with the Target breach," Jacobs said.
Jacobs said thieves may use the information obtained via skimming immediately or a few months later so victims don't know how or where their information was stolen.
Jacobs encourages people to use credit cards at the pump and at stores. That way, consumers are protected if data is compromised.
"You're playing with the bank's chips. The bank is going to issue those credits back to you right away. When you use the debit card, that money stays out of your account 60 to 90 days," Jacobs said.
Jacobs said that even people with poor credit can obtain a credit card with a limit of up to $300.
Guadalupe's bank told her to work with the gas station to resolve the problem, according to her email.
