Credit Card Fraud
Tips for protecting yourself against credit card fraud
  • Keep a list of all your credit cards including the account number and phone number to the issuing company.
  • Review your credit card statement as soon as possible. Match charges with your receipts to ensure all charges are yours and are for the correct amount.
  • Always sign a new credit card immediately.
  • When making a purchase with a credit card, make sure you get the card back and the receipt. Check the receipt for accuracy.
  • When using a credit card at a restaurant or store, make sure that all blank lines are marked through so that no one can change the final amount.
  • Never sign blank credit card receipts.
  • Only travel with the credit cards you plan on using.
  • Never give the account number of the credit card over the phone unless you initiate the call.
  • When making an order over the telephone, try to avoid using a cordless phone. Cordless phone messages can be easily intercepted by devices as unsophisticated as baby monitors and police scanners.
  • Do not write the PIN for the account on the card.
