SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - Store owners and law enforcement officer learned how to prevent card skimming Tuesday afternoon in Sherman.

Douglas Distributing and the Texas Food and Fuel Association partnered to host a skimming prevention seminar.

The seminar was designed to educate store owners on how to identify a skimmer, and help protect themselves and their customers.

One of the speakers says criminals often target older equipment at gas stations.

Skimmers can also drain bank accounts with a debit card, but not as much with credit.
