   Warning against fraudulent activity  

 

Dear Clients,

We strongly warn against a new type of fraudulent activity targeting Apple Pay and Google Pay users.

A fraudster on Facebook contacts a user (the fraudster often pretends, using a fake profile, to be one of the user’s friends) asking for transfer of a small amount of money via a special payment gateway where payment card information and a one-time SMS confirmation code are required. This payment gateway is fake and by filling in the information, the user will allow the fraudster to misuse the card. The fraudster then adds the card to the Apple Pay / Google Pay application to get the user's money.

 

Please comply with the following principles of safe behaviour on the Internet:

  • Always ignore requests for sending money via social networks from unknown users.
  • As regards requests for money from friends on social networks, always check with the respective friend, ideally over the phone or in person.
  • Never enter any payment card information on non-secure websites.
  • Always read the confirmation SMS.
  • Only enter Apple Pay / Google Pay service activation codes into these applications as part of their activation and never forward them to other people.
  • If you receive an activation SMS that you did not request, call your bank's infoline immediately.

   New payment card verification rules

 

Starting 14 September 2019, new card payment verification rules laid down in a European Regulation will enter into force in the Czech Republic.

In respect to this, we would like to notify you that there may in some cases be changes in payments using physical payment cards in brick-and-mortar shops.

Clients may be asked to enter their PIN for transactions of less than CZK 500 (for which no PIN currently has to be entered) or their transactions may be rejected without stating the reason for the rejection.

In such cases, payments can be made by inserting the card into the terminal and entering the PIN. This will verify the holder in accordance with the Regulation and the payment will be completed.

 

Contactless payments can also be made via payment cards downloaded onto a smartphone or other device.
