PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE DATE: December 27, 2017 CONTACT: John Neff, Chief Deputy INCID ENT: Credit Card Skimmer Alert, Llano County, C17-1519 On December 26, 2017 at 11:49am, Llano County Deputies responded to a call of a credit card skimmer on the gas pumps of the 7-11 store 2606 W RR 1431, Kingsland. Several of the gas pumps had skimmers on them. It is unknown how long the skimmers had been in place. Consumers who pumped gas with a debit or credit card at the 7-11 in the past few weeks are advised to check with their financial institution to determine if their accounts have been compromised. The Llano County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating in coordination with the Texas Department of Agriculture. This is the first time this type of activity has been reported in Llano County. The best way to avoid being skimmed at the gas pumps is to pay inside the store. If citizens see that the scanner has been tampered with pay inside and report it to the attendant. See informational video by the Texas Department of Agricultural to help protect consumers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYEiGFYGuxc&t=7s

IMPORTANT!! Loss of phone and internet service overnight- Frontier will be conducting maintenance that will effect telephone service for some people in Llano County. Starting at 11:45 PM until approximately 4:00 AM AT&T wireless customers will experience a complete loss of service including 9-1-1. All landline phones will be able to call 9-1-1 during this outage. No other wireless carriers are expected to be affected by this outage at this time. Additionally, residents of the City of Llano will experience loss of both internet and long distance service through Frontier. Northland cable and other internet providers should not be affected. Local landline calls can still be made, this only affects long distance and internet in City of Llano and possibly some points west of Llano into Mason County. Please take appropriate measures to ensure that you have a phone that will be able to call 9-1-1 should you experience an emergency (either a landline or wireless carrier other than AT&T). If you normally schedule computer maintenance for the overnight hours that may be interrupted by the loss of internet service (this is for Frontier landline internet only) then delay that update or do it before 11:30 PM.
