Re: Contactless fraud up by two thirds

Cite ?

my hunch is contactless fraud is very low-level, if it happens at all. Mainly because it's already protected against to a certain degree by the fact that almost all card readers are overlooked by CCTV.

Bear in mind in the UK the maximum loss possible from contactless payments is £90.

And if (as I do) you destroy the CV2 number on your card, the chances of online fraud are vanishingly small.
