In a statement by Aurora Police Sergeant's Dan Courtenay on how cybercriminals obtain the user data to FOX31, “Now they have Bluetooth, where they can just sit in the parking lot of the gas station and it feeds right onto their laptop,” Courtenay said. “All your information from your credit cards, it feeds right there.”

You may be thinking, "yes this scam should be avoided, but how could this affect my organization?" If you have end users that use your company credit cards for travel and expenses, your users' credit card information could be compromised if they fall for this new scam. 

Unfortunately when new technology such as contactless payment processors are created to keep your credit card info secure, cybercriminals will still find ways to infiltrate and steal your data.
