Credit Card Fraud

New credit card scams have surfaced recently that target credit card customers by phone and email. One involves fraudsters posing as Mastercard or Visa Security Fraud Department employees. The fraudster asks a series of questions to extract personal cardholder information, such as the three–digit card validation code imprinted on your card's rear signature panel.

In some cases, the caller has already secured some account data, such as the cardholder's name, number and card expiration date, and is seeking enough additional information to make fraudulent purchases on the Internet.

To prevent credit card fraud, never disclose any account information to someone you do not know–not over the phone, not by email. Prevention is the key to safety. Monitor the transactions on your credit card statements carefully and contact the credit card company immediately if you notice anything suspicious.
