Security tips to keep in mind for your BOB Bank Credit Card

A credit card provides easy access to funds and makes your shopping, travel, dining, and entertainment comfortable, as you will not have to pay immediately for any of the transactions. Along with advantages, credit card comes with a threat of fraud as well. If you do not exercise caution regarding certain aspects pertaining to the credit card, you may fall prey to fraudulent transactions and end up with a huge financial loss. Some of the points to ponder to avert misuse of the credit card are:

  • Keep the credit card in a safe place. Do not leave the credit card unattended at any point in time.
  • Keep the credit card in your wallets/purses so that a theft/loss will come to your notice immediately.
  • Note down the credit card number and the BOB Financial Solutions Limited numbers for immediate reference in case of need in the future.
  • You should maintain high secrecy in respect of the PIN. Do not share the PIN with anyone, including your close friends or family members.
  • Don't fall prey to unscrupulous calls claimed to be from the bank by providing the card details and the OTP. The bank never calls to get the credit card details.
  • Do not note down the PIN anywhere.
  • The PIN created should not be predictable. Avoid using the date of birth, anniversary dates, and sequential numbers for creating a PIN. The PIN should always be random numbers that cannot be guessed easily.
  • When you are using the credit card at merchant establishments, restaurants, petrol pumps etc., insist on the card being swiped in your presence. With this, you can avoid theft of credit card details or the PIN reaching the wrong hands.
  • When the card is returned to you after swiping, ensure you have got the right card.
  • Never take the help of others to use your credit card in ATMs.
  • Immediately on receiving the credit card consignment, check for the correctness of the name. If there is any discrepancy, do not return the card to the delivery boy. Instead, contact BOB Financial Solutions Limited and inform them about the discrepancy and get the issue resolved.
