Fraud with contactless cards

Belgian consumer organisation Test-Achats/Test-Aankoop carried out an investigation into the risks of contactless cards. They found that it was worryingly easy to steal amounts up to €25 without consumers being aware it had happened.

The consumer organization has also tested the protective card-holders, and, good news, they all work! You can get one for free on: www.testachats.be/pochette.
