Credit card skimmers have been found on public parking pay stations in Sapperton.

New Westminster police said fraudulent card reader plates were placed over the legitimate ones making it difficult for users to notice.

The City of New Westminster said a woman complained on Tuesday, April 22 that her credit card had been compromised after she had used it at a station earlier in the day. The city notified police and found card skimmers on two stations in the eastern part of New Westminster.
