types of credit card fraud

This type of fraud comes in many forms, and as technology advances, so do the techniques used. Essentially, credit card fraud is the theft of another person’s credit or debit card information which is then used to obtain funds or purchase goods. The following are examples of credit card fraud:

  • Skimming - using a device to obtain card details
  • Card duplication - making copies of another person’s card
  • Cardholder not present transactions - using stolen details to purchase goods online
  • Shoulder surfing - looking over the shoulder of a person using a cash machine to obtain their PIN
  • Phishing - sending emails that look like they’re from a legitimate company, asking people to input their details
