Protect Your Card
Date Posted: Jul 26, 2013

Interac advises the following preventative measures be undertaken.

  1. Be alert - keep your card in your sight at all times during transactions to ensure your card is not swiped through a foreign device.
  2. Protect your PIN - shield the pin pad from view when entering your PIN using  your body, free hand, or both.  Do not share your PIN with anyone.  And, change your PIN if you feel it has been compromised. 

    In the majority of card skimming situations, the consumer will not be able to tell it is happening so it is important that you:
  3. Review statements regularly to identify any fraudulent spending.
  4. Report unauthorized transactions to your credit union immediately.


Please remember to check your statements!
