Plastic card fraud involves the compromise of any personal information from credit, debit or store cards.
The personal information stolen from a card, or the theft of a card itself, can be used to commit fraud.
Fraudsters might use the information to purchase goods in your name or obtain unauthorised funds from an account.
Plastic card fraud can also include ‘card not present’ fraud, such as the use of a card online, over the phone or by mail order, and counterfeit card fraud.
Fraud has been committed if money has been lost.
If fraud has been committed, report it to Action Fraud.
