5 Ways to Protect Your Debit Card Against Scam

Fashion home!

Scammers are everywhere. You can play directly into their hands if you are not careful. Protect your debit card by paying attention to the following tips

1. Regularly update your details
Updating your contact details regularly (i.e. mobile number, e-mail, address, etc.) with your bank enables them notify you easily in the case of a suspicious transaction. 
2. Watch your online transactions
Be smart with your online transactions. When shopping, shop on credible sites and look for secure transaction symbols like the “lock” icon on your browser. Avoid using public hotspots for online payments by all means. It could be very risky.
3. Regularly check your account balance and transaction history
Keep tabs of your bank account balance and transaction. If you suspect any unauthorized transaction, report to your bank as soon as possible.

4. Destroy old cards
Always destroy your old card when you receive a new one. Cut out the magnetic strip and destroy the chip.

5. Don’t share your pin
Never share your ATM PIN with anyone you don’t trust. It is meant to be confidential.
