According to recent estimates, 2 in 5 Adults will fall victim to fraud. Credit Card fraud alone is estimated to cost $12 bn per year or $381 per second. This global threat knows no boundaries of age, gender or nationality.
A new app, CardianAngel, has been released to help protect users from the ever-growing threat of Credit Card theft and Identity Fraud.
The CardianAngel app is designed to protect users from joining the 40% of adults that lose hundreds of pounds, dollars, euros or rupees to fraudsters.
This is achieved in a number of ways:
- The app stores telephone numbers needed to cancel cards in the event of loss. (Just to be helpful, the app also stores helpful numbers like driving licence and passport offices)
- Users can create a list of their own cards. So, when in a panic, no cards are missed or forgotten
- Can’t find one of your cards on our list – no problem, just add it.
- Every call made is time stamped. If card provider questions cancellation time, you have a log.
- In addition, CardianAngel reviews hundreds of feed feeds and provides the user information on the new and most devious fraud tactics – Forewarned is forearmed.
What to do in the event of a loss
CardianAngel contains contact information on more than a thousand card providers. Users can add any missing ones.
In the event of a lost purse or wallet, the user simply goes through their My Cards list cancelling each one. This process can be undertaken immediately, minimizing the amount of time cards may be used fraudulently. The time of these calls are logged, in case of disagreement with your card provider.
Prevention better than Cure
Users are kept up to date with the latest fraudster tactics, helping them keep safe and avoid losing their valuable information and hard earned money. CardianAngel scans hundreds of news feeds and informs subscribers of the major fraud tactics. This isn’t limited to Card fraud but covers every issue related to personal fraud, arming users with useful tips and information on avoiding becoming a victim.
Become an Affiliate
CardianAngel is looking to recruit affiliate to spread the word and sign up subscribers. “It doesn’t cost anything to be an affiliate but it goes along way in passing the message and helping others get the necessary protection from Fraud,” says the CardianAngel representative.
“By promoting us on your blog, your community or campus, we share subscription earnings. Once you hit Gold Status you can recruit further members to increase your earning potential,” adds the representative as he describes the benefits from being a CardianAngel Affiliate.
“We know we can’t stop fraud,” says CardianAngel’s representative, “but if we can just help our subscribers hang on to their hard earned money,” then we’ve made a difference.”
