Credit card safety tips

A credit card is your cash

Don’t think your credit card is just a piece of plastic. Once it goes out of sight, anyone can make transactions without having an OTP using only the credit card number and CVV number. So we advise you to beware of such acts.

Keep your sign at the back of your credit card

It is advised that you sign the back of your credit card while receiving it. In case you lose the credit card, anyone can make transactions on it and sign their name on the receipt and the back of the credit card.

File report for a lost credit card or fraudulent transactions

We highly recommend that you should report in case you lose your credit card right away. Credit cards grant a window of 3 days, during which you should report any fraudulent transactions (otherwise you will be liable to pay for the same).

Always keep the receipts with you 

Using this method, you can compare the transactions with the receipts to the amount you were charged. It reduces the chances of error.
