I've been had twice in Parker. Once was on the Friday of 4th of July weekend and had to have my accounts frozen. I felt like dumb and dumber with all the IOUs I was passing around

Had 3 cards hacked in 4 weeks. For two of them I was out of town and had to have friends pay my hotel bill until I could write them a check when I got home. I just applied for a second credit card because of all this shit. it's a pain in the ass!!!! Been paying cash for gas.

Puts gas on credit cards guys and carry 2 of them.

Never use debit at high risk places like this.
Solid information. Credit cards and cash. Using debit cards they can empty your checking account and it will take awhile to get the funds back from your bank. Credit cards not as big a deal.

I learned that the hard way in Needles and Havasu. I’m So Cal if I have to shop at a shitty gas statiOn, liquor store, whatever, I use credit.

I am in the credit reporting business and i see this activity more this last year than any year ever its almost out of control with these scammers. I switched completely to credit cards 2 years ago no ATM anymore the banks are getting to hard to get your cash back credit card companys are easy. plus i get all the points for travelling.

I only use credit cards for purchases. Only use debit to pull cash out at the banks ATM. Which I can’t think of the last time that I have even done that. Typically only pull cash out for traveling expecnses like tips for the valet etc

I just checked my account (credit card) and they got me. I only use 3 stations in town...Circle K on Kiowa and 95, Campbell Cove for the boat, and sometimes I will fill the Can am at Hava Gas. Thanks to the OP for the heads up, cancelled the card and have a new one on the way. Btw there was 3 fraudulent charges at gas stations in Vegas...all on the 15th.

I knew this would happen!!! Last summer I saw two Armenian guys in Blue Water playing the slots. Right away I told my brother, no reason these guys should be here, if it’s not for them being up to no good.

Yes this ^^ i still carry a debit card but haven’t used debit in years. We solely use our cc for everything, and this is just one of the reasons why.

Ok that is stupid as fuck. Lot of ‘Armenian guys’ on this site, probably saw a couple of them. Oh, could you distinguish between an Armenian, Persian, Lebanese or other ethnicities? So if you’re an Armo, you can’t go to a casino or party because??? I’ve seen a lot of white trash do this type shit. The true bottom feeders of the desert oasis. An Armenian and a Russian fuck invented this shit, moved on from that scheme long time ago. By the way, you want to party, go hang out with some Russians or Armenians. Those parties are epic and trust me ain’t no coors light drinking bullshit. Nothing worse than stereotypical/ignorant individuals making stupid comments. Public Service Announcement over!

Well am Armenian myself, there’s a difference between a guy enjoying himself somewhere and when something’s a bit fishy. The Armenian guys from Armenia just don’t do Parker. Majority of them are up to no good, Goodfellas/Ghomorra pretty much showed what’s up in those movies.

We've had chip and pin debit cards like Europe for the last 10 years here in Canada. I rarely use my credit cards here. Even at restaurants. I love chip and pin!

Isn't there a bunch of Armenians that own race boats and homes in Parker. I meet a few thru Campbell Carl. They go by the Armenia Navy.

i use b of a. they sent me an email little over a week ago stating they are sending me a new debit card as mine may have been compromised at a retailer i used it at. i used it at the hava gas shell by my house, so that makes sense to me now. got new card the other day in the mail.

Probably the ole timers. Especially ones we consider Western-Armenians.

had a txt and email alert from Amex while at the pump in havasu last week as someone was trying to put a $1000 charge on it. Probably random timing and unrelated but that is another reason to use a credit card for sure!

Wife read about this on FB. Crazy that it wasn't caught sooner.
We only purchase with a cc and carry a couple of spares in case one needs to get shut down.
I also signed up for alerts for any purchase over $100, any purchase without a card present or any purchase internationally.

So I need to get my act together on this, I use my business debit card for everything, and depending on the time of month there can be up to $50k in that account. I use Havagas all the time. The suggestions to use a credit card instead, whats the rationale on that, because the card has a spending limit or max?

My understanding is that you’re only liable for $50 in the incidence of fraud on a credit card. Most of the time the bank Will not charge you anything and issue you a new card and removed the fraudulent charges.
I’ve been told if they take it off your debit card that you have to jump through a few hoops to get your money back in to your account.

Our work credit cards got hit at the circle k at 95 and Kiowa and also at Smiths. I was at the circle k when they found the skimmers. The skimmers were inside the panel nothing to even detect they even had security seals to tell if the panel had been opened but seals were fine
