Supermarket credit scam unveiled


A forum for credit card scammers has named supermarket stores where forged cards can allegedly be used.

The forum features a UK fraudster who wants to use stolen US cards at self-service checkouts.

It debates which stores allow shoppers to swipe cards instead of using the chip and pin payment system.

Reformed hacker Jacques Erasmus of online security firm Prevx says the forum could lead to a large number of fraudulent attacks on supermarkets.
