Kind POS operator shares tips to avoid scam
He advised people who patronise POS operators to make sure they hold the machine till it approves the transaction.
After the transaction has been approved, the customer should press the red (cancel) button so that the transaction and card details will be erased from the POS system.
According to him, if this is not done, the POS vendor, if fraudulent, can access the customer’s BVN and send it to fraudsters who would hack into the account and empty it. “Once you give them your ATM card, no ever make this mistake.
Make sure you no give them the card. Stay with the card then press cancel”, he warned in the video.
