The first step in checking if a card is legitimate is to check if it’s actually a credit or debit card, a practice known as “card verification”.
This requires the card issuer to send you a bill or letter from a company that checks the card’s identity.
If the card looks legitimate, you can use the code in the bill or in the letter to check whether it’s a genuine credit or a fake card.
The card issuer should be able to provide a valid ID, but you should also check whether the card has a signature or is a fake.
If it’s not, the card will be flagged as a fake credit or counterfeit card and will be denied.
If you think you’ve got a counterfeit credit card, you should take your card to the bank.
If a card has not been issued by the issuer, the bank will send you the code you need to get a bill.
If, however, you’ve not received the code, the issuer will send it to you, and you can go to the credit card issuer’s website and check the identity of the card.
