FL: Seacoast Bank customers’ cards replaced after Fort Pierce ‘skimming’ incident

A few thousand Seacoast National Bank customers have received new credit or debit cards in recent weeks because a handful of them were victims of a “skimming” incident at a Racetrac gas station.

Both the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office and the Fort Pierce Police Department have been investigating the case that began when a few people noticed fraudulent charges on their bank statements from Seacoast and TD Bank.
