Tips to customers as to protecting the personal data


The Ukrainians lose money from bank cards due to fraudulent activity. The National Bank reported on last year's losses of citizens, amounting to 177.2 million hryvnas. The scale of abuses isn't yet critical: 0.0037 percent of the total volume of all transactions with payment cards. At the same time, the number of victims from the actions of the malefactors is still growing.

Tips to customers as to protecting the personal data

We advise you to be more careful with payment cards, so don't give any data to anyone, as for the cards. Regardless, whether you make payments online, in the store, via mobile phone or other device it's necessary to understand that the security level of the card account, to a large extent, depends on the client as well. To avoid any problematic situations you should follow a few simple rules:

  • never give anyone your personal data. Recently within Ukraine and Transcarpathia, in particular, the number of "telephone fraudsters", who just lure all the relevant information from the people seamlessly, and then remove money from the accounts has increased. If someone contacts you with a similar request immediately hang up or delete the message and call your Bank;
  • make it a habit to keep track of your own payments and check account statements. If you suspect any possible potential fraudulent activity, immediately contact the financial institution that issued your card;
  • there are many other ways to prevent fraud. For example, not click on suspicious links, create complex passwords, shred old account statements and documents containing your personal information before throwing them in the trash.

Choose a reliable and up-to-date protection from the international payment system Mastercard in the Transcarpathian COMINVESTBANK. See details here or at the nearest financial institution branch in your area.
