Spyware, spam, viruses -- these are the terms computer users really hate to hear! But have these users really done something to prevent their computers from getting infected with these malware? Like installing an antivirus program or a complete computer security system perhaps? Me, I have always been a computer security fanatic. Back in the olden days of floppy disks (I was in HS when those "huge" black floppies were the rage), I never miss to scan them before using on a PC. Also, I am always constantly updating our antivirus software coz it won't do you any good when your antivirus is outdated. How can it detect the newest viruses then??

Good thing that my two bros (fellow home computer users) are into computer security too. Guess they learned the hard way when one time our PC got infected and all their saved games (100s of play hours wasted!) were wiped out. Muahahaha! Soon after that, we always had the best PC security program installed. Right now we are using ESET NOD32 AntiVirus (the best ever!!!) plus Comodo Firewall Pro. I highly recommend you use these two programs and constantly update them (via internet). Good luck!

PSA is Public Service Announcement dear readers =) Anyway, in our crazy world, scammers will never run out and they will keep churning out crazy stuff to rip us off. Of course, credit cards are usually their target since this is the most popular mode of payment these days. This blog post is quite long but PLEASE, read it til the end so you will know how to protect yourself from the latest credit card scam. Better yet, ditch your credits cards and just use debit cards -- that's what I do! Saves me the hassles of scams and what-nots PLUS I have practicallt debt-free as I can't overspend. Hehe! Anyway, do read on!

Someone I know works at the Royal Bank of Canada and just received this communication about the newest scam. This is happening in southern Alberta right now and moving. Also in the U.S. This one is pretty slick since they provide YOU with all the information, except the one piece they want. Note, the callers do not ask for your card number; they already have it. The scam works like this:

Person calling says, "This is (name), and I'm calling from the Security and Fraud Department at VISA. My Badge number is 12460 , Your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase pattern, and I'm calling to verify. This would be on your VISA card which was issued by (name of bank). Did you purchase an Anti-Telemarketing Device for $497.99 from a marketing company based in Arizona?"

When you say "No", the caller continues with, "Then we will be issuing a credit to your account. This is a company we have been watching and the charges range from $297 to $497, just under the $500 purchase pattern that flags most cards. Before your next statement, the credit will be sent to (gives you your address), is that correct?"

You say "yes".

The caller continues - "I will be starting a Fraud Investigation. If you have any questions, you should call the 1- 800 number listed on the back of your card (1-800-VISA) and ask for Security. You will need to refer to this Control Number. The caller then gives you a 6 digit number. "Do you need me to read it again?"

Here's the IMPORTANT part on how the scam works:

The caller then says, "I need to verify you are in possession of your card".

He'll ask you to "turn your card over and look for some numbers". There are 7 numbers; the first 4 are part of your card number, the last 3 are the Security Numbers that verify you are the possessor of the card. These are the numbers you sometimes use to make Internet purchases to prove you have the card. The caller will ask you to read the last 3 number to him.

After you tell the caller the 3 numbers, he'll say, "That is correct, I just needed to verify that the card has not been lost or stolen, and that you still have your card. Do you have any other questions?" After you say no, the caller then thanks you and states, "Don't hesitate to call back if you do", and hangs up. You actually say very little, and they never ask for or tell you the card number.

But after we were called on Wednesday, we called back. Within 20 minutes to ask a question. Are we glad we did! The REAL VISA Security Department told us it was a scam and in the last 15 minutes a new purchase of $497.99 was charged to our card. We made a real fraud report and closed the VISA account. VISA is reissuing us a new number. What the scammers want is the 3-digit PIN number on the back of the card. Don't give it to them. Instead, tell them you'll call VISA or Master Card directly for verification of their conversation.

The real VISA told us that they will never ask for anything on the card as they already know the information since they issued the card! If you give the scammers your 3 Digit PIN Number, you think you're receiving a credit. However, by the time you get your statement you'll see charges for purchases you didn't make, and by then it's almost too late and/or more difficult to actually file a fraud report.

But not quite! Hehe! Have a great week ahead guys! =)

And when I say "big", it doesn't mean he's older than me (I'm the eldest in a brood of 3). It literally means he's BIG! Hehe! Happy 26th birthday Ya! PEACE! =)
