If all this allows to define PostePay like a card very comfortable, and therefore very widespread, on the other hand its popularity risks undermining its own safety. The tools that allow us to make payments, especially when it comes to the Internet, are always to be used with the maximum attention.
This can lead some users to some wrong clicks, perhaps on an unknown link or, worse, to provide data through pages that appear to be official sites in all respects. We remind users that, in these situations, caution must be absolute to avoid ending up victim of scam.
The message says “Card blocked”
Many PostePay owners are receiving messages reporting that your card has been blocked. Of course, this is a rare event, especially when large sums of money are not moving, but still possible. Many then respond to the message by providing sensitive data.
The problem is these messages they are not official, that is, they do not come from the PostePay staff. In some cases, some users have even reported receiving calls with the same purposes. The data provided thus ended up in the possession of the creators of what is in effect one fraud.
Card numbers, codes, passwords – everything was collected and subsequently used to make withdrawals up to thousands of euros. All this, from the side of the scammers, is extremely easy, since once they have the data of a card, it becomes “virtually” their property, in the sense that they can dispose of it as they like.
