Why do I need a SkimSafe® card?
If like the majority of people living in the UK you have a contactless card, then your bank details are at risk of being stolen by wireless pick-pockets
If your bank cards have this symbol, you are at risk
Contactless cards contain a chip that stores and transmits your card details wirelessly to a card reader when making a contactless payment.
Whilst this makes our every day lives’ more convenient, criminals are taking advantage of this technology by using scanners (skimming devices) to scan your card in the same way; stealing your card details and money.
These scanners can be easily hidden in a pocket or bag leaving victims none the wiser. You won’t even know you’ve become a victim of skimming until you check your bank statements and see unrecognised transactions on your account.
