What should I do if I suspect someone is using a fraudulent card?

  • Retain the card if possible
  • Make photocopies of front and back
  • Record cardholder’s name and address if possible
  • Ask cardholder where the card was obtained from
  • Contact the local police and report the matter*
  • Refuse access to site (subject to company rules)

Forward copies of all evidence to: The Operations Team CSCS Ltd 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT marked “SUSPECTED FRAUDULENT CARD” OR email rep[email protected] making sure to include copies of all evidence.

CSCS and CITB will fully support any prosecution with technical and factual evidence.
