PAYPASS IS THIEF’S PASS TO QUICK CON
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.
