Re: Holiday Season Safety Tips from EPPD

Actually never use your Debit/check card for holiday purchases because if the cashier messes up.Your bank more than likely won't reverse the charge right away freeing up that money, instead it will take up to 3-5days for the money to be available and now your money is in limbo.

If you have a card that has a RFID chip in it buy a protection sleeve because someone could just be in the area and scan its frequency and retrieve all of your credit card information.
