Someone's used my debit card details at a shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur.
Thank goodness the Halifax spotted it! Their fraud team tell me there are three ways my details might have been obtained: hacking into my computer, a skimming device at an atm, letting the card out of my sight.
I never let my card out of my sight, I won't use an atm if it looks funny (and only ones from major banks), online? not sure, if they'd got into my computer why not take my other card details.
Question: I've been using the underground a bit recently. You get really close to people there. My cards are in my wallet in a backpack. It is possible to read/copy/scan a card via some kind of reader?
