Summary, etc.:
Everyone is affected by credit card fraud, if they are aware of it or not. Every day there are a variety of ways that scams and fraudsters can get your card and personal information. Today so much business occurs over the Internet or via the phone where no card is present. What can start as a seemingly legitimate purchase can easily turn into fraudulent charges -- or worse, sometimes a physical confrontation, when a criminal steals a credit card from a consumer who meets to pick up a product or receive a service. In Preventing Credit Card Fraud, Jen Grondahl Lee and Gini Graham Scott provide a helpful guide to protecting yourself against the threat of credit card fraud. While it may not be possible to protect yourself against all fraudsters, who have turned scamming Internet businesses into an art, these tips and techniques will help you avoid many frauds. As a growing concern in today's world, there is a need to be better informed of what you can do to keep your personal information secure and avoid becoming a victim of credit card fraud. Preventing Credit Card Fraud is an important resource for both merchants and consumers engaged in online purchases and sales to defend themselves against fraud.
