PayGate Phishing Scam

 




Recent Company News

Beware of emails asking you to enter your credit card details or pin.  Companies like PayPal, PayGate and Moneybookers have been the target of fraudsters and scammers who send out emails asking cardholders to enter their credit card details, pin and MasterCard Securecode and Verified by Visa details.  PayGate will never send you an email asking you to enter your sensitive card data.

There is a recent PayGate phishing scam sent out to cardholders asking them to enter their credit card details, ID number, CVV and ATM pin.  This is a PayGate phishing scam perpetrated by fraudsters.  Similar to the PayGate phishing scam, PayPal and Moneybookers have had scammer experiences.  PayGate, PayPal and Moneybookers are leaders in the field of online payment solutions and take the security of their cardholders and the combatting of fraud very seriously.

What fraudsters do is get your credit card detail from this PayGate phishing exercise and use it to shop online at your expense.  An example of a recent PayGate phishing scam can be viewed at http://www.paygate.co.za/securityalert.php.

PayPal provides comprehensive information on their website of how to detect and combat scams like the PayGate phishing scam.  To see more about PayPal and fighting phishing scams you can go to https://www.paypal.com/fightphishing

Moneybookers has been the target of many scams similar to the PayGate phishing scam.  More information on the Moneybookers scams can be viewed at http://www.moneybookers.com/ads/moneybookers-scam-information/phishing/

Don't just click and give away your sensitive information for fraudsters.  Your gutfeel is often the best detector of fraud or a PayGate phishing scam.  If you are in any way suspicious of someone pretending to be PayGate and asking for sensitive payment details then contact PayGate directly via the PayGate website http://www.paygate.co.za/.  PayGate is a world leading online payment solution company working with the card associations Visa and MasterCard and the banks worldwide to ensure the highest possible information security standards.
