Safety tips to keep your card safe
If you’ve ever received an unsolicited call, SMS or email 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 the back of your card) when making an online purchase or telephone order, but you should never divulge your PIN.
Contact your bank if you think you’ve been phished. And as a safety precaution, it’s a good idea to register your cards for transaction alerts so you’ll be alerted about unauthorized transactions.
