Play it safe.

Don't be a card fraud victim:

Keep cards and cheque books safe. Do not let anyone know your PIN numbers even if they say they're from the police or the credit card company.

When paying by card, don't let it out of your sight.

Only use secure, well-known internet sites when shopping online.

Always check bank and credit card statements carefully, and query anything you don't recognise immediately.

Be careful when disposing of bank statements and credit card receipts. Criminals search dustbins for these.

If you think your card is stolen or copied:

Call your card issuer immediately.

Your card will be cancelled. If you still have it, remember not to use it again.

Check with a credit reference agency such as Experian to see no fraudulent bids for credit have been made in your name.
