Gas Pump Skimmers - learn.sparkfun.com
For those who don’t want to read through the gritty details here’s the summary:

These skimmers are cheap and are becoming more common and more of a nuisance across north america.

The skimmer broadcasts over bluetooth as HC-05 with a password of 1234. If you happen to be at a gas pump and happen to scan for bluetooth devices and happen to see an HC-05 listed as an available connection then you probably don’t want to use that pump.

The bluetooth module used on these skimmers is extremely common and used on all sorts of legitimate products end educational kits. If you detect one in the field you can confirm that it is a skimmer (and not some other device) by sending the character ‘P’ to the module over a terminal. If you get a ’M' in response then you have likely found a skimmer and you should contact your local authorities.
