HOW TO BE SAFE FROM ONLINE FRAUD
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.
