Column: Protecting credit and debit card information

Using a credit or debit card involves an Internet transaction. And the Internet is a dangerous place. The list of organizations and businesses that have been hacked is huge, with the theft ofCREDIT AND DEBIT CARD data commonplace. What measures can you take to protect your sensitive information? The first step is to know the laws governing credit or debit card theft and fraudulent use. In the case of credit cards, federal law says you aren’t responsible for fraudulent charges exceeding $50. If you report your card lost or stolen before any unauthorized purchases are made, or if your account number but not your actual card is stolen, you’re not liable for any amount. In addition, check to see whether yourCREDIT CARD PROVIDER has a “zero liability” policy protecting you from all fraudulent purchases. The law is different for debit cards. You aren’t accountable if you report your card lost or stolen before any fraudulent activity occurs. If you report the card missing within two days of learning of its disappearance, you limit your responsibility to $50. Your loss caps at $500 if you inform your bank after two days of learning of the theft or disappearance but within 60 […]

Debit card fraud impacts South Carolina Federal Credit Union

In the letter, the South Carolina Federal Credit Union says the security of some of these debit card users has been compromised, but the credit union itself has not been hacked. The US Secret Service tells News 2 this information could have been compromised due to the increased use of card skimmers. US Secret Service Agent in Charge of the Charleston Office, John Kenney, says, “You want to make sure that it’s the actual device that you’re using, whether it’s the ATM or the gas pump. You want to make sure that there aren’t any skimmers attached to it because we have seen an up-tick in skimmer activity. So if the device doesn’t look like it belongs to the gas station or the bank, if it looks like it’s been added on, if you see any cameras over your shoulder, you want to be very careful about using that and in fact you want not to use it and to contact local police.” He says card users […]
