Unauthorized Purchases

Fraud Prevention
Unauthorized Purchases
As a MasterCard cardholder in Singapore, most card issuers will not hold you responsible for unauthorized purchases charged to your account, after the card issuer is notified of any loss, theft or disclosure relating to your card. If you discover any loss or theft, or suspect unauthorized activity on your account, stop using your card and contact the issuer immediately.

The following guidelines can help to reduce the risk of unauthorized purchases appearing on your bill:
What You Should Do.
Memorize your PIN number (Personal Identification Number) and keep printed copies of the numbers in a confidential place.

Sign all your payment cards as soon as you get them. This way when salespeople check the signature on the back of your card against the signature on the sales receipt, you will be protecting yourself if your card is lost or stolen.

Check your cards periodically to make sure none are missing.

Destroy and dispose of copies of receipts, airline tickets, travel itineraries and anything else that displays your card numbers.
