Europol Payment Card Fraud Prevention Alert

On 19 April 2012 Europol (O5 Forgery of Money and Cybercrime) published an updated public information leaflet on preventing payment card fraud.

The leaflet is intended to prevent payment card fraud from happening to any cardholder, especially during the holiday seasons when people are likely to use their cards in places they are not always familiar with and are therefore more vulnerable to fraud by default.

Along with general advice it provides specific advice for cardholders covering:

• Cash machines (ATMs)
• Payment Terminals (POS)
• Travel (Hotels, Bars, Restaurants)
• What to do if you become a victim of Payment Card Fraud or ID Theft

It can be downloaded from the 'Other Links' page of the website of the European ATM Security Team, under the heading 'Europol'.  It's worth a look!
