Card fraud rises

Take care when using your bank or credit card.

It's been revealed that card fraud has hit its highest half-yearly level since 2009.

Over £216 million has been lost to fraudsters over the first six months of 2013 - a 17% rise on the same period in 2012.

However, it remains below a peak of over £300 million in 2008.

Methods use include fraudsters posing as police officers or bank officials to obtain personal information and PINs, or so-called "shoulder surfing" at street ATMs
