The rumors of wide spread credit card scam grappled the administration as the Wellington City Council officials conducted a checking of all parking machines located in different localities. The scammers are said to have attempted some illegal transactions by using machines meant for payment through credit cards. Thieves are reported to have hacked details of credit cards which are used to pay parking fees in a downtown Auckland. Banks are also concerned about the development and geared up to avoid such events happening in future. However, no one is sure about the leakage of information through credit cards at the parking site in Auckland. However, experts did not rule out the possibility of involvement of a dishonest employee who might be instrumental in helping scammers. Meanwhile, Westpac Bank has assured customers for the safety of their money and added that the fraudulent transactions are confined in a small parking lot while there was no threat reported elsewhere in the state. It advised cardholders not to divulge the sensitive information including PIN details to anyone to avoid such incidents in future.
