Never give out your pin to any­one — not even friends and fam­ily, and es­pe­cially not to a stranger

While key­ing in the se­cu­rity/ pin code of your card at an ATM or store, en­sure that it is not vis­i­ble to peo­ple stand­ing around

Do not dis­close cru­cial in­for­ma­tion like your phonebank­ing pin­code or your in­ter­net bank­ing pin­code

Al­ways be phys­i­cally present when your card is be­ing swiped at any ser­vice es­tab­lish­ment.

Do not hand your card over to some­one to make the pay­ment

In case your card is stolen, en­sure that it is blocked at the ear­li­est. Also in­form the po­lice to en­sure that there is a record of your card get­ting stolen

Do not hand over your credit card to some­one else. In case some­one wants to use it, ac­com­pany the per­son, if pos­si­ble

Erase or hide the CVV num­ber – the three dig­its on the back of your card – af­ter mem­o­ris­ing it

Do not make on­line pay­ments on web­sites that are not se­cure. Web­sites that be­gin with https have a higher safety that those with­out http

Be­fore making any pur­chases on­line, en­sure that you check the feed­back from pre­vi­ous buy­ers.
