    Default Got Caught

    I got a call from my bank today that there was suspicious activity on my Credit Card over yesterday and Today.
    They took about 430 in 7 small transaction mostly about 24 a go to some place called jumpareana in the Uk
    and some other thing I cant remember what she call it.
    My daughter was the last person to use my cc as she booked flights online on Sunday last and I am thinking if she
    went in to some link that got my details? Anyway the Bank are sending me out forms for my local Garda to sign and then
    they will reimburse me I hope.
    I got caught a few months back on my Bank card after receiving an EMail from Paypal to say someone was hacking my account,
    and they gave me a link to re-enter my details which I stupidly did and I got a call from my bank on a Sunday night at 10pm
    asking if I was trying to send money to western union? so they saved me from getting burnt as it would have been my own fault.
    So I suppose I am trying to warn ye all Be Careful.

    You should also keep all cards in a wallet or purse with RFID protection, as all a scammer has to do is stand close enough to you when you're out & about in a public place & they can skim all the info from your cards & they can take small amounts of 20e/30e without your PIN number, the skimmed payments will be processed as 'contactless payment'.

    Perhaps this link will explain a little more about how the system works and it's built-in safeguards.

    worth a quick read.

    If you keep two cards together in wallet/purse, scammer can't read them.

    I really do not agree with the contactless payment scheme for cards, for the reasons as above.

    Technology will be the death of this world. That's a certainty. The only question is when.
