Chief Justice Roberts Hit By Credit Card Fraud

A warning that credit card fraud does not discriminate, even the Chief Justice of the United States, John Roberts, has been a victim of credit card fraud, a Supreme Court spokeswoman said on Thursday.

Roberts’ credit card problem was first reported by the Washington Post in a story that said the chief justice was heard talking about it in a suburban Maryland Starbucks on Tuesday morning. 

To avoid Canadian credit card fraud, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada has a few recommendations:

– Do not share your credit card or credit card PIN with anyone.

– Cover the keypad when entering the PIN at a retailer or a bank machine.

– Keep your credit card in sight when you make purchases to prevent skimming or double    

  swiping.

– Record your credit card number, card details and whom to contact in case of theft or

   loss. Keep this information in a secure place.

– Check your statements every month and report any errors or unauthorized transactions.

– Keep your credit card statements in a safe place, and shred them when you no longer

  need them.

– Get written confirmation when you cancel your credit card.

– Only use your credit card online on trusted sites and ensure that your online transaction

  is encrypted. 

– Look for websites with addresses starting with “https” or a padlock image on the page.

  This will indicate that the information entered on these pages and the transmission of

  the information is secure.
