Credit card fraud
Credit card fraud is when someone uses your card or card details to make purchases or transfer funds without authorisation.
How to avoid credit card fraud?
Never share your card or login details with anyone. Your card is strictly personal and card sharing or reassigning is not permitted (sharing your card will nullify your rights in case of fraud).
Keep your eyes out for phishing
Never enter your card details on unknown websites
In case a website where you entered your card details at some point has been compromised, block the card and request a new one.
Phishing is a form of scamming where the attackers use email, text messages or phone calls to trick you into giving them your personal or financial information (for example: passwords, account numbers, social security number, etc.)
How to avoid phishing?
Check the sender
Attackers usually make it seem like they are contacting you from big organisations by making small changes to the email address (for example: @peo.io instead of @pleo.io)
Check for typos
Poor spelling and grammar are often the first giveaways of a scam email
Don't open links or files
In case you receive an unexpected message you are unsure about, make sure to never open any of the links or files
Never share your PINs or passcodes
Trusted organisations will never ask you to provide these types of confidential information
Contact the sender
If you are unsure if the message is real, contact the sender through their official contact details on their website.
Remember: We will never contact you to ask for your password, card information, or login verification codes. Please do not share this information with anyone and reach out to us at if you are unsure.
