Protect yourself against fraud

Credit card fraud

Credit card fraud happens 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.

  • Report lost cards immediately

  • Keep your eye 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.

If you see an unauthorised payment in your Pleo app, make sure to report it.  


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.)

  • Never share your PIN or passcode

    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 passcode, card information, or login verification codes. Please do not share this information with anyone and reach out to us at if you are unsure.
