• Overview
  • It has been reported that several merchants swipe customer cards for second time at their point of sale (POS) or cash register, immediately after the card transaction is approved after first insert/swipe of the card at a POS.
  • During the process of above mentioned "Double Swipe", merchants, possibly, collect vital card payment details and cardholder’ personal date on magnetic stripes, ostensibly for their internal accounting purposes and or marketing purposes.
  • Such activities by merchants may lead to malpractices and card frauds.
  • All customers are advised to immediately bring it to the notice of the bank either personally to their base branch or on email –"it.oman@bankofbaroda.com" in case of “Double Swipe” of their cards at merchant outlets.
