This can happen to you as well, but if you are careful, you can avoid fraud through debit or credit cards. Never share your secret password with anyone. Somebody calls and says that your card is going to be closed, if you tell the details then it will be fine. Never share your card number, CVV or PIN on such calls. Even if it is not from the bank itself. Such card details and password are never asked from the bank. And if someone cheats, then money goes out online, then immediately inform the concerned bank and block the card. On informing the bank immediately, there is a possibility of getting the money back many times.
