    Prosecutors are expected to read a transcript of the 2005 testimony, saving for the very end of their case Cosby's own words about using the 1970s party drug "the same as a person would say, 'Have a drink.'"

(WFLX)-- Hess today issued the following statement to South Florida customers:

 In recent months, there have been attempts to steal credit and debit card numbers at service stations in South Florida using so-called "skimmer" devices.  Criminals tamper with gas pumps and place devices into their internal mechanisms to try to illegally intercept and record customer credit and debit card information as the cards are swiped at the pump. 

 Unfortunately, several Hess stations have been targeted by these illegal activities.  As soon as we have found evidence of such attempts, we have notified law enforcement.  To protect customers, we continue to intensify security measures to help prevent future incidents.  We also continue to work with law enforcement agencies, including the United States Secret Service, as they pursue these criminals. 

While we cannot be sure whether any customers' payment card information was actually obtained by perpetrators in any of these incidents, we urge customers who may have paid by credit or debit card at the specified stations and pumps listed below in the days immediately prior to the time and date noted to:
