The credit card industry has bolstered its monitoring systems to try to catch fraud before it happens, but it's also essential that you take steps to safeguard your personal data. Preventing identity theft involves protecting your sensitive information, including whom you give your credit card information and how.
Did you know?
More than 2.1 million cases of fraud and identity theft were reported in 2020, according to the Federal Trade Commission - an increase of 26% from five years earlier and 138% in a decade. Credit card-related scams accounted for a significant chunk of those cases, including more than 40% of identity theft reports. And those were just the cases that were reported to law enforcement and consumer protection agencies.
Here is what you can do:
Double-check that you are sending your credit card details to the intended person
Send your personal card details in a protected way
You can’t prevent the recipient's email to get hacked but if your information is protected the hacker won’t be able to access it!
