Preventing Credit Card Fraud

Preventing Credit Card Fraud Credit card fraud is a crime that can often be prevented. For example, something as simple as a signature on the back of your card could prevent the card from being used if it’s been stolen. Even better, put the letters CID (which stands for See ID) on the back of the card. Then when a merchant attempts to verify the signature on the receipt with the card, they’ll request to see your identification.

Keep your card in sight. Whenever possible, keep your credit card where you can see it. Some places, like restaurants, take your card away and then bring it back after they’ve…
