Credit Card Security

To prevent fraud, it is important to keep your card safe, and report any suspicions of misuse, theft or loss immediately. To give you an idea of how important it is for you to keep your cards safe, in 2003 the amount lost to card fraud was over £402 million.

What if my card is stolen?

You should immediately report any stolen credit card to put a stop to the account. If you are overseas, banks usually provide a reverse call charge service to allow you to stop the card as soon as possible.
