Scammers can duplicate your cards, how to protect yourself
How do you keep this from happening to you? Ted Rossman from Bankrate.com has ways to protect your money and accounts.
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Just when you think scammers never get caught, Randolph county deputies arrested a Triad man. Investigators believe he called a couple’s credit card company ordered duplicates of their cards and had them mailed to a Winston-Salem address.
This kind of ID theft sounds too easy. Shouldn’t the credit card company have asked for identifying information? Maybe they did and the scammer stole it too.
“Even if the banks’ fraud measures failed here, what ultimately happens, is the consumer should not be liable for those fraudulent charges,” said Tedd Rossman of Bankrate.com.
