A 7/11 customer is warning people on social media after he found a credit card skimmer attached to the store's ATM.

Matt Stoddart posted the warning, along with pictures, to Facebook.

Stoddard found the card skimmer at the 7/11 on Dequindre, north of 12 Mile. He says he saw a small gap, and remembering a Reddit video, he pulled it off.

"Sometimes it pays to be paranoid," Stoddard posted.

Madison Heights police say they are investigating.

We have contacted the owner of the 7/11 for comment, but have not yet heard back.
