The Jamaica National Commercial (NCB) is reporting that criminals have taken to stealing Point of Sale(POS) machines, which they tamper with before returning them to their original or different merchant locations, in an effort to capture cardholders' information. The bank issued the scam alert in a newspaper advertisement cautioning customers to protect their credit and debit card accounts.

NCB is asking their customers to protect their credit and debit card accounts by doing the following:

  • Be vigilant while using cards.
  • Always use their card with the Europay, MasterCard, and Visa (EMV) chip and PIN if they have one.
  • Note the date, time and location if a cashier swipes in one machine and then another, and report it to 888-NCB-FIRST.
  • Monitor their account(s) and immediately report any suspicious activity.
