Stolen Credit Card Crimes

Stolen credit cards pose a threat to people and the economy. Here are some key facts about stolen credit cards and how to prevent becoming a victim

  1. Use Secure Websites: Only enter your card details on secure, reputable websites (look for "https" in the URL).
  2. Monitor Statements: Regularly check your bank and credit card statements for any unauthorized transactions.
  3. Enable Alerts: Set up alerts for suspicious activity or transactions over a certain amount.
  4. Protect Physical Cards: Keep your cards in a safe place and never share your PIN.
  5. Use EMV Chip Cards: These are harder to clone than magnetic stripe cards.
  6. Secure Online Accounts: Use strong, unique passwords and enable two-factor authentication.
  7. Beware of Phishing: Don’t click on links or open attachments in unsolicited emails or texts.
  8. Shred Documents: Shred statements and receipts that contain your card information.
  9. Use Digital Wallets: These can offer additional layers of security for online and contactless payments.
  10. Report Lost or Stolen Cards: Immediately notify your bank or card issuer if your card is lost or stolen.

These steps can significantly reduce the risk of credit card theft.
