Remember last year's Shell petrol station's chip-n-pin cloning scam?

another one .
Motorists have lost millions of pounds in a card 'skimming' scam at UK petrol stations.
The theft involves cloning motorists' cards and stealing the pin numbers while customers are paying for fuel. Around 200 petrol stations across the UK are thought to be involved.
The BBC says Police are investigating complains made in Bristol, Bury St Edmunds, Edinburgh, Hull, Leeds, Norwich, Nottingham and Peterborough.
Small amounts of cash are regularly taken out of affected accounts over a period of weeks, so motorists may not have noticed that they have been targeted.
According to Reuters, the UK payments association (APACS) estimates that £30m has been illegally drained from accounts last year.
The Sri Lankan government claims that rebel group the Tamil Tigers is to blame for the fraud. While much of the theft is carried out in the Far East and India, police say there is not yet any definite link to Sri Lanka
