Police issue PayWave and Paypass security warning

WITH more financial institutions moving towards "PayWave" and "Paypass" Visa cards, Toowoomba police are reminding people to maintain security of their cards.

"If someone gains unauthorised access to a Paywave or Paypass card they can make a fraudulent purchase up to $100 per store without a PIN number or signature being required," a spokesman said.

"Police have noticed that when a card is stolen an offender will often make several transactions at different points of sale over a short period of time.

"Often (this happens) before the card is even known to be stolen and before the card is cancelled or transactions suspended."
