Card security

What you can do to keep your card and banking safe from fraudsters.

What’s on this page

What is card fraud?

Card fraud includes lost and stolen cards, counterfeit cards, and the use of card details on the internet or over the phone.

Security responsibilities

We monitor for unusual transactions, and offer security features such as chip, PIN and Verified by Visa (VbV), but it’s up to you to keep your card secure.

What you can do

  • Sign the signature panel as soon as you receive a new card, and make sure that you securely destroy any old ones
  • Regularly check that your card is still in your possession
  • Don’t let anyone else use your card, or the card details
  • Treat your card as if it was cash, and don’t leave it unattended (e.g. in a car, at your workplace, or in a public place)
  • If you’re not sure about the security of a merchant or an ATM, don’t use it

Contacting us

Tell us straight away if your card is not in your possession.  You can report a lost or stolen card in the app, internet banking, or over the phone.
