BREACH: Foxton Fuels Confession & Lax Security Put Customers At Risk #CashIsKing

(Wingham, On) A business on the edge/fringe of Wingham is reporting online that their customers’ data has been compromised. It is urgent that all Foxton Fuels customers cancel their card, and/or change their pin numbers for any card they have used at the compromised locations. If customers use the same PIN number for other cards, they should be changed too.

Please contact Foxton Fuels to see what steps you need to take, and for what compensation they might be offering to affected customers too make up for their confessed lax security, and your inconvenience. Those affected that are not made whole by Foxton Fuels should contact a lawyer for advice.

Foxton Fuels confessed online “Remnants of two sided tape, tipped me off to the possibility that a skimmer had been installed.”

The above confession shows the device had been installed and removed before Foxton Fuels staff even became suspicious something was wrong. This is on top of a security camera image clearly showing that a pin-hole camera was installed.

Foxton Fuels: “Sadly, madly, frustratingly, the Mount Forest and Wingham cardlocks have been targeted by thieves in the past two weeks. In both instances, we discovered the skimming devices early, and contacted our affected customers immediately. PLEASE BE VIGILANT AND CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY IF YOU SUSPECT THE CARDLOCK HAS BEEN TAMPERED WITH.

A simple way to have avoided this extended breach would have been for staff to do simple visual inspections a couple times a day to check for skimmers, as every other responsible business does.

This breach could have been prevented by staff monitoring the security cameras, as the newly installed pinhole camera was clearly visible and would have been instantly noticeable to anyone that regularly checked the footage.

All readers are reminded that cash is secure, and they should choose a business that respects their customers enough to take simple steps to protect them.

Card skimmer installed over actual card reader. The skimmer copies the information from the black magnetic stripe on the back of the card.
Suspects are using the same silver security tape as Petro Canada.
A common comment is that it is difficult to feed the card in and out.

Looks good on them! I hope they get there asses sued off. Those pricks were against the convoy and maybe now carma is finally getting all those freedom ha8ing Trudeau loving nazi applauding sheeple too scared to stand up for what is right. Hell, seems Foxton won’t even stand up for their customers and sit on there ass instead of checking the pumps or cameras. I hope you go bankript.

How dare they steal from Foxton Fuels! That’s my job….well it use to be until I got caught and bribed my way outta criminal charges and took “early retirement”.
