Safety tips to keep your card safe:
If you’ve ever received an unsolicited call, SMS or e-mail, asking you for sensitive information like your card number and PIN, or username and password, that’s phishing.
You may be asked for your card number, expiry date and 3-digit secure code (on back of your card), when making an online purchase or telephone order, but you should never disclose your PIN.
Contact your bank if you think you’ve been phished. And as a safety precaution, register your cards for SMS alerts to be alerted of unauthorised transactions.
