    I can't remember the last time I went to a gas station that is not 24 hours so, assuming it is not an inside job, I wonder how the scammers have time to install the skimmers without being seen.

You are gravely and fundamentally underestimating the inattention and apathy of the average gas station employee, as well as the contempt a gas station owner has for his attendants.

If I put on a suit, walked up to a pump with a master key, fucked around inside it and then reaffixed a seal I can guarantee you I'd get away with it 95% of the time, assuming the employee even knew I was there.
