Credit Card Frauds

Credit card frauds is a type of financial fraud. It involves the unauthorised use of someone's credit card information to make fraudulent transactions, leading to financial losses for the cardholder. It is a form of identity theft because it often requires stolen personal information to perpetrate the fraud.

The myriads of credit cards in use worldwide are a gold mine for criminals. As credit cards have become a powerful payment instrument, it is paramount to acknowledge and address the potential risks linked to these cards, especially credit card fraud. While credit card fraud can take various forms, there are proactive measures you can implement to safeguard your funds and personal information.

A predominant form of identity theft

Credit card frauds is the most common form of identity theft, affecting millions annually. It occurs when someone steals a card or snatches personal information to perform so-called card-not-present (CNP) transactions.

The person whose credit is misappropriated typically ends up with unpaid debt in their name. While this situation can eventually be resolved, it requires a considerable amount of time and effort. Moreover, it may lead to temporary damage to their credit scores, thereby hindering their ability to secure new credit for a certain period.

All players involved in the card-based payment process can potentially fall victim to scammers, including:

  • Cardholders
  • Online merchants
  • Payment gateway providers
  • Payment processing companies
  • Credit card payment systems
  • Card issuers (issuing banks)
  • Acquirers (acquiring banks)
