As mobile technology continues to evolve, making day-to-day spending more convenient and biometrically secure, fraudsters also continue to evolve their methods in order to find ways to navigate around these systems, through deceiving you into giving out personal information.
Now, with the surfacing of digital wallet scams, we are seeing fraudsters impersonating bank and service providers to request information they need to be able to use your Debit or credit card(s), to commit fraud on your account(s).
These are the current tactics for digital wallet scams which are being reported to us, but please stay vigilant; fraudsters will continue to keep developing and attempting different tactics in order to keep successfully using this scam.
When targeting Apple Pay users:
When targeting Google Pay and other digital wallet users:
If you are contacted either by text message or by phone call with any of the activity listed above— do not engage, this is a scam.
If you suspect you’ve received any form of suspicious contact, or may have been victim to a scam, please report it to us as soon as possible.
Now, when you call 159, you'll be redirected to a service that connects you to your bank so you can report scams or suspected fraudulent activity.
We will never actively contact you to register cards in your digital wallet. If you have not personally requested to register a card for your digital wallet through your own device, and are contacted about doing so— do not engage, this is a scam.
