Fraud affects all of us.
Credit and debit card fraud costs consumers around the world a staggering $5.5 billion a year.1 Fortunately, we all have within ourselves the power to fight it. It takes a network of thieves to make fraud work.
So let’s build a stronger network of families, friends, college kids and grandparents – and use the power of relationships to shine a light on fraud.
