Spot a Scam with Iketsetse Zenzele:

Card skimming

Fraudsters duplicate your card details using skimming devices placed into the ATM card slot, swipe machine or a hand-held device. They capture your details stored in the card’s magnetic stripe while you make your transaction, and use that to defraud you in different ways.

Tip: Never let your card out of sight when you transact or pay, and sign up for Standard Bank’s My Updates to get notifications of your transactions.


Pronounced “fishing”, it involves criminals fishing for your info – hoping you’ll take the bait. Criminals use fake links on websites or emails to trick you into giving out your details. Never click on an internet banking login link in an email or SMS. Your bank will never ask you to login to verify any information or authorise payments via email or SMS.

Tip: Watch out for emails and messages that create a false sense of urgency forcing you to act quickly. Consider it a red flag if anyone asks for your PIN or banking details, unless you’re at a bank.
