"Skimmed Dumps"

For those who saw the two posts about "Skimmed Dumps" before the posts were removed - I first thought they had something to do with marine "MSD's" but I did a little Google'ing and it appears that they are the stolen credit card data and/or bank sign-in data. The "skimmed" refers to the skimming of the credit card data from a card or use of a card in a store, etc. - and the "dump" is a quantity of that data.

I saw that. I've seen it happen here before as well.

Funny you should mention FL. The only time I've had my credit card information stolen and used was when I went to FL last year.

I believe South Fl is among the worst in the country

I got my card clipped in San Diego. They had a fine shopping experience up and down the west coast.
