Credit card fraud is currently a trendy type of scam that refers to the unauthorized access or use of credit cards or debit cards to purchasing goods or services or making money transfers. Standard methods of doing credit card fraud are stealing or losing someone’s card, stealing card information (card number, pin, CVV, passcodes, etc.), or stealing from unsecured websites.
One can avoid credit card fraud by enabling SMS alerts and online banking to closely monitor unauthorized usages. Then if you notice any activity not done by you, you can disable your credit or debit card by contacting your bank.
