Stop Skimming! The Swiss launch a new intiative.....

On 5th March 2012 a 'Stop skimming' campaign was launched in Switzerland. The Swiss Police are using the campaign as an information and awareness-raising platform for the general population. The campaign is supported by the Swiss Bankers Association and Swiss Crime Prevention, and covers a range of measures.

A definition of card skimming is provided, along with advice and tips for cardholders and retailers on how to prevent it. Advice is also given on what to do if affected by skimming.  More information can be found on the campaign website.

On a related note, the European ATM Security Team has just posted a Canadian video on their website that gives fraud prevention advice to merchants.  Produced by Interac Association, the video highlights that merchants deploying payment terminals need to be aware of security risks, and offers advice on what they can do to mitigate them.
