The ATM Card Money Fraud.

It is the time of the year when many innocent online users are looking for bargains and also making online transaction. While this is a good thing for both buyer and seller, you need to stay updated with the online security threats that are currently going around. Kaisilver continues to monitor various online security issues and warns both buyers and sellers through this exclusive security blog.

The ATM card fraud basically perpetuates through emails. You receive an email saying that an ATM card with thousands or even millions of dollars filled in waiting for you. You could be asked to contact the shipping or courier agent, or just send full details of your name, bank account etc. There is a phone number and contact person mentioned in the email. All this is done to increase your confidence in moving ahead with the transaction. Do not fall for this fraud, you will get nothing and only end up losing money. At times, you receive a similar email from a (supposedly) big courier company. This is a cloak email and does not really originate from FEDEX, DHL, UPS or any other courier. The email says that your card is lying with them and you need to pay a small fee like a few hundred dollars to receive it. You might feel that it is a small amount to pay inorder to receive the millions of dollars that are stuffed in the ATM card! But just forget such ideas and delete the email, you will not get a single cent.

Please pass the above information to your friends and relatives. It is only such open sharing of information that can make the online world safer and more useful. We need to harness the benefits of online commerce while remaining alert about online dangers. This is the best way to proceed.
