Credit card fraud warning

NEW measures are needed to beat credit card fraudsters who are becoming ever more devious in the face of security measures that have cut losses by 40 per cent in five years, the Home Office warned yesterday.

In future purchasers may have to "swipe" their fingerprints as well as their credit card through a machine. "Iris scans" of customers eyeballs and voice scans could also be introduced to stop people using stolen cards, according to Home Office research.
