Manila, Philippines - Most Filipinos own at least one credit card nowadays but as a credit card owner, how responsible are you in taking care of your vital information? Credit card fraud is the simplest and easiest form of identity theft, no wonder scammers are creative in doing such crime.
Here is the latest credit card scam so beware. on a facebook post by Badette Hermosa de Leon, she share her recent experience.
She said: "I just want to share this new fraud card modus operandi!!This afternoon my husband received a text message from an unknown no. Saying that our credit card was cancelled and blocked for an upgrade. He called the no. given to complain. They know all the details about us.. our address, transactions of our card and credit limit!! Sa pag hello pa lang sumagot nakakaduda na dahil parang nasa bahay lang sila at may tumitilaok pa na manok. So he didn't give away anymore details they needed. My husband called the hotline of BPI and told them what happened. They said this is an attempt to copy our card so don't give any details and DON'T EVER GIVE YOUR CARD TO THEM ESPECIALLY THE LAST 3 DIGITS AT THE BACK OF YOUR CARD. After 2 hours may nagdoorbell na saying he's from BPI at may binibigay na letter for the upgrade na pinapapirmahan!! He just faked the signature para umalis na siya agad pero babalik daw para ibigay yung bagong card namen. This is so scary!! Please share this guys!!"
