Card pay­ment scam

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

Po­lice have is­sued a warn­ing to store own­ers and op­er­a­tors fol­low­ing at­tempts by scam­mers to pur­chase goods via fraud­u­lent credit cards.

The scam­mers man­u­ally en­ter fraud­u­lent credit card de­tails into EFTPOS ma­chines while dis­tract­ing the cashier by pre­tend­ing to pay us­ing their phone.

Po­lice have called it the “card not present” scam.

As a preven­tion mea­sure, po­lice rec­om­mend cashiers never hand EFTPOS ma­chines over to cus­tomers to com­plete trans­ac­tions.

Any in­for­ma­tion about this scam should be di­rected to Crime Stop­pers on 131 444.
