Bank/Credit Card Security
Please see below information on shopping safely on the internet and advice on bank/credit card security.
Protect your PIN
We take paying by card and accessing cash any time of the day or night for granted these days. With last minute and late night shopping, socialising and eating out it’s all too easy to lose track of how much we are spending and where.
Take extra care with your credit and debit cards and reduce the chances of them being stolen or skimmed.
Contactless Bank Cards
IMPORTANT: If you have a ‘Contactless’ bank or credit card card please be mindful that these can be skimmed, and the information stolen without the card even being removed from your possession. This gives the ‘Electronic Pickpockets’ the information they need to steal from you as highlighted on The Tonight programme recently. Click on the link below to read highlights of the programme
‘Card Minder Pouches’ protect your card and are available to purchase at £1 each. These are available via an Online Shop – please click on this link http://web302.extendcp.co.uk/owlcymru.org/shop/shop.html Alternatively, please telephone 01352 708118 (please leave a message if there is no reply) or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
