Don’t be smug after getting a credit card
Credit card frauds that happen over the net can leave you exasperated. For instance, if someone accesses your card details and books film tickets and you come to know about it a little later, you might not be able to do much. By then trickster would have watched the film at your expense. Many feel privileged to own a credit card. Using a credit card makes for a lot of convenience. However, don’t be too relaxed or you might find yourself in trouble. If you have a credit card, be in touch with the credit card team and keep yourself abreast of all the transactions.

Lucky !
You need to keep pace with the most recent developments or you’ll find yourself lagging behind. Jumping on to the latest bandwagon is often the right thing to do. Like most business people, I too started to transact online with my customers. I almost became a victim of credit card fraud but I was lucky that I did not incur a huge loss. A wily customer used someone else’s credit card details to buy goods from me. I came to know of this when I got a call from the bank that cancelled the payment. Luckily, the goods had not been dispatched by the courier company. Although I managed to get my goods back, I had to pay a small chargeback fee to the bank.
