Credit cards are a safe and convenient way to make payments. Here are some smart ways to reduce the risk of payment fraud and get the most from your cards.
1. Check your statements regularly. Being a victim of fraud is bad enough, but it can be worse when you don’t notice until large amounts have been stolen. Review your statements regularly and carefully. Get in touch with the bank as soon as you suspect any suspicious activity.
2. Install anti-virus software on your personal computer. Keep your anti-virus software up to date to help prevent any theft of your personal data. Avoid using public computers for secure transactions. If you have to use a public computer, such as when you're travelling, ensure that no one can see your screen. Log out of all websites when you're finished and delete your browsing history.
