CardSwitch Partners With OpenCard to Battle Payment Card Fraud
The CardSwitch system prevents fraud that results from card skimming. CardSwitch Technology offers a system that is the only really effective method to deflect the increase in card fraud while guaranteeing an excellent quality of service to cardholders. The technology enables cardholders to put an electronic lock and key on their card accounts, making it futile for hackers and fraudsters to skim cards. When a cardholder decides that his card will not be used for any ATM transaction abroad, he can lock his card account, making it impossible for fraudulent out of country ATM transactions to occur. The same control can be applied to card-not-present transactions, out of country card payments and local ATM transactions.
Cardholders can then unlock their card accounts for these types of transactions before they want to use their card and can specify particular limits, such as which countries the card will be used in, period of time, number of transactions, and more. These parameters, called "cardholder user limits" can be set by simply sending an SMS command with a mobile phone, calling an automated voice response system, or via the Internet. Cardholders can lock or unlock their card accounts 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
