The sheriff was on TV a few months ago saying that credit card skimming is rampant in Clark County, and that noone should ever use a card at any gas station in Clark County.

I got both of my debit cards skimmed at Terrible Herbst stations. Fortunately, my banks were really great about it and took care of everything within minutes. So what I've done is get a ChevronTexaco card with a very low limit, so that if it gets skimmed the potential damage is very small and my bank accounts are safe.

You do know your bank account is FDIC insured against theft and fraud so if you got skimmed you wouldn't be liable for the $. Also most credit cards offer protection with card membership. Amex has never expected me to pay for fraudulent purchases. Maybe you should have real info before you go spouting, only spend cash at the gas pump bs logic
And maybe you should go back to third grade and repeat the portion where the rest of us learned reading comprehension. Then you might notice that it was Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo who made the statement about not using cards at gas stations in his county. I spouted nothing, cabbie. Go back to your long haul.

My understanding - Debit cards do not have the same fraud protection as a credit card.
It depends on your bank. Some banks (Chase and Citi, that I know of) give both equal protection. I wouldnt be surprised if the rest of the large banks did the same.

Right haha I'm a cabbie lmfao I just moved to Vegas a year ago and started rideshare back in December. I wouldn't work for anyone but myself. Been self employed since I lived In New York.

Maybe you shouldn't believe everything the sheriff says on the news. But who cares anyway you're blocked now
Hmmmm... who should I believe? The man who's been sheriff of Clark County for the last two years, who's job is to know about crime in southern Nevada, who is a graduate of the FBI Academy, who has access to all kinds of reports and data about crime in Clark County... or... some random internet loser who hasn't even been in town a year and can't read at a third-grade level.

I wonder which I will choose...?
