Contactless card payment on the rise

According to a report released by the U.K. Cards Association, a total of £2.1 billion-worth of contactless payments were made in July in the U.K. Contactless card payments were 19% of all the 1.2 billion card purchases make in the U.K. during the same month. As the popularity of these “tap and go” cards continues to rise, are you sure your cards are safe?

But are they safe?

Contactless cards are a convenient and quick way of paying for purchases, but it’s been proven that they are not entirely secure. In one study, researchers were able to ‘steal’ card details using widely available, cheap card readers and then were able to place orders using the card details including one for a £3,000 television set. The hassle of dealing with a fraudulent transaction on your card can be a nightmare!
