New credit card scam costing Kiwis thousands

From Sunday Morning, 9:37 am on 24 November 2019

A new scam which sees small amounts (around $10-$15) deducted from credit card accounts each month -- ostensibly for things like software purchases -- before one big charge is logged, has emerged on the scene. One victim was a Sunday morning listener who had $10,500 taken from their credit card. Sean Lyons is the Director of Education & Engagement for Netsafe. He joins the show to discuss how common the scam is and how many Kiwis have been affected.
