Shoppers have been advised to be extra vigilant when using debit or credit cards for payment following revelations of the existence of a cartel specializing in electronic pick-pocketing.
This type of theft was exposed after a motorist who offered his card for payment at a fuel service station, noticed that the attendant ran the card over a strange device.
He immediately asked the attendant what the device was but upon noticing that he had been caught, the attendant attempted to run but then the client pursued him and caught him.
The client later alerted the police who later arrested the attendant known as Joseph Mwaniki
The gadget, known as a skimmer steals information from the card which is later used for unauthorized purchases and illegal cash withdrawals.
