How to play your cards right.

CARDWATCH, the association against credit card fraud, suggests that you:

Guard your card - don't let it out of your sight when making a transaction.

Check your receipts against your statements carefully. If you find an unfamiliar transaction, contact your card issuer immediately.

Carefully discard receipts from card transactions - shred them if possible to prevent "bin divers" from acquiring information about you and your cards.

Never write down your Personal Identification Number (PIN) and never disclose it to anyone, even if they claim to be from your card issuer or the police.

When using a cash machine, be wary of anyone who might be trying to watch you enter your PIN and do not allow yourself to be distracted by anyone trying to talk to you.

Always report lost or stolen cards to your card issuer immediately. The 24-hour emergency number is on your last statement or call directory inquiries on 192.
