  • What is Card Skimming?

    Card skimming is the copying of encoded information from the magnetic stripe of a legitimate card, making use of a card reader, for fraudulent purposes.
    Common types of Card Frauds are:
    ⦁    Lost/Stolen: unauthorized usage of a credit card as a result of it being lost or stolen
    ⦁    Counterfeit: duplicating legitimate credit cards which are then used for fraudulent activities. This includes skimming which is a duplication of the magnetic stripe
    ⦁    Card Not Present (CNP): unauthorized usage of credit card information for fraudulent activities over the internet, phone or mail

    How do fraudsters skim cards?

    Fraudsters use sophisticated devices to steal PIN and card information. These devices are small and concealed in the ATM, which may not be even noticed by the customer. The technique of a fraudster is to manage to manipulate the client during the transaction
     A card skimming device is placed over the card slot, copying the card information once the card is inserted into the ATM. A small camera directed to the keyboard is hidden to capture the PIN. With duplicate the information on the card, the fraudster create a new duplicate card and start making transactions by withdrawal all the funds that they can get from the account as soon as possible.

    Advice how to prevent the Card Skimming
    ⦁    Cover up the PIN: Always cover the keypad with one hand while keying in the PIN number. By protecting your PIN, criminals do not have access to your account when card information is compromised (this method is useful when transacting at an ATM or Point of Sale).
    ⦁    Do not accept assistance, guidance or allow anyone to interfere with your transaction - fraudsters sometimes pose as bank officials by offering assistance or interfering with your transaction.
    ⦁    Control your daily limits in ATM, POS & Internet limits - lower your daily ATM, POS & Internet limits if the limit is set at a level unrealistic to what you would usually spend.
    ⦁    Be observant of your surroundings when transacting at the ATM - Do not let people be around you at the moment of doing the ATM transaction.
