Card theft in self check out warning

Heads up for those using Coop self checkout in Winterthur, thieves are targeting people when busy paying, bumping into them or distracting to take payement cards.

Just happened this weekend to a person I know, they did not notice immediately and some money was spent before the card was blocked.

I share with you as we tend to imagine these things never happens in Switzerland.

I can block my card in moments with my app. I recommend everyone check this out.

Re: Card theft in self check out warning

I would also encourage 'this person' to report to the police immediately. CCTV is often only held for 3 days.



I saw some policemen and local technicians very carefully dismantling a parking machine in our town a week or so ago... I suspect they may have been looking for a skimming device.



I was thinking 'hmmm....I wonder how many places are there now in Switzerland where you can 'tap and go'...
