    The latest credit scam warning!

    Keep a watch out for people standing near you at
    retail stores, restaurants, grocery stores, etc., who
    have a cell phone in hand.

    With the new camera cell phones, they can take a
    picture of your credit card, which gives them your
    name, number, and expiration date. Identification
    theft is one of the fastest growing scams today, and
    this is just another example of the means that are
    being used. So... be aware of your surroundings

    They would also need your billing address and the code at the back of card to order in your name.

    Of course the easiest way to gain access to credit card numbers, 3 digit security codes and home billing address is to work with the retail public (now where is that whistling emoticon?)
    Scary thought aint it?
    Well no, not really. As a holder of a credit card you are insured against fruad (unless you have knowingly lost your card an not reported it). If your&#39;e scammed for a few grand then the most you will usally have to pay is 50-100 (talking about most UK credit cards.)
    Of course debit cards are a different matter unless you pay for the insurance as an extra.
