Thread: Unauthorized Debit Card Transaction.

    Default Re: Unauthorized Debit Card Transaction.

    As the name implies, it is a Debit Card.

    Once the merchant clears the transaction, the amount gets deducted. Unlike credit card, even when the merchant clears the transaction, amount is still owe to the bank. There's still recourse if the transaction is unauthorized.

    Debit card not be used for online transaction in the first place as there is no protection against unauthorized transaction.

    Happened to my UOB credit card last year.

    To do:
    1. Call bank to inform the unauthorised transaction, existing card will be cancelled, new card on the way.

    To happen:
    1. Bank will send a letter of dispute, please read, sign and return.
    2. Once investigation is completed, or near completion, amount will be credited.

    It'll take approx. 3 months.
    Don't worry, it's almost hassle-free.

    For credit card you have some protection, so you can get your money back. Debit card different issue unfortunately.

    I never asked.....in fact I didn't realise my HSBC card was a debit card until I saw it on their website, I wasn't listening carefully when I opened my account with them :-(

    The problem I see with debit cards is when you loose the card, EVERYONE can use it to debit your account without the need for a PIN, cause it can be used as a 'credit card' through the VISA/MASTER system.......

    Just look at how many merchants look at your signature......

    This is interesting... if your money was stolen due to a security leak on your pc... will you still be liable for your loss? hmmm... don't know. But I look at it as if you have your wallet hanging up of your back pockets someone with sly fingers picked your pockets and took money from your wallet and then slip it back in.

    Money still gone.. who took it? and who is liable? I guess you?

    i don't understand, i know that credit card fraud is easily resolved once you can prove that you did not do the transaction. i am trying very hard to understand how a debit card fraud case would be any different.

    online transaction is perhaps hard to prove though.

    Many of the banks that issue debit cards voluntarily offer “zero liability” to cardholders. Both MasterCard and Visa have policies that go beyond federal guidelines so that you will not be held financially liable for fraudulent purchases on your card. Ask your bank about the kinds of debit card transactions covered under its zero liability protection policy.
    doesn't go! operate under mastercard?

    fraud can be committed by other means that can be carried out IRL, like skimming.

    This is an advise. Always keep gaming or openly used machine from your transaction PC. This is bec, transaction machine must be trustworthy thus the access to untrusted sites are minimal.
    Of course it depends on the person usage behaviour.

    If using Windows, Zonealarm Ultimate is the best for me (unfortunately Win7 got lockout problem with it, hope they solved it) as it coupled firewall + antivirus/malware and virtual browser session.

    Many banks now have a virtual keyboard to log in your password, or have a secondary pin generating machine (HSBC, UOB has) so these scammers can't use this method of 'reading' your keyboard anymore to log in......cause everytime you need to type in another number which they don't know
