Credit cards number thieves phone the victims and feign Visa staff and ask to specify information on the credit card with the alleged purpose of checking doubtful transaction. At that, fraudsters do not ask confidential data (PIN-code or number of account) – this would alert most victimized card holders.

As is known, fraudsters ask CVV-codes at the bottom of credit card. It turned out few of cardholders knew that these codes are often used for approving on-line transactions.

As a rule, fraudsters know almost all required information on the card and call the victim only for finding out exact CVV-codes
