Keeping your credit card safe
Don't let your card out of your sight. Guard your card when making a transaction
Carefully discard receipts from card transactions to prevent others from acquiring information about you and your cards.
Check you receipts against your statements and if you find an unfamilar transaction contact your card issuer immediately.
Never write down you Personal Identification Number (PIN) and never disclose it to anyone, even if they claim to be from your card issuer or the police.
Report lost or stolen cards to your card issuer immediately. The 24-hour emergency number is on your last statement or call directory enquiries on 192.
Sign any new cards as soon as they arrive. Ensure that you cut up the old card as soon as the new ones become valid.
Don't keep your cheque book with your cards.
Never leave cards unattended and keep your bag or briefcase on your lap when using public transport.
At work keep your bag and other personal belongings locked in a cupboard or drawer.
