PAYPASS IS THIEF’S PASS TO QUICK CON

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

IF a thief steals your wal­let, PayPass-en­abled bank cards are the first thing they will tar­get. Re­cently, there has been an in­crease in the num­ber of re­ports of th­ese cards be­ing stolen and used. Once they get the card, it is just a mat­ter of go­ing to as many shops as pos­si­ble to make pur­chases un­der $100. Re­mem­ber, thieves treat th­ese cards like cash and it does not take long to rack up hun­dreds of dol­lars of pur­chases with a tap. Al­ways be vig­i­lant with your wal­let and do not leave it in view in the car.
