Fuel cards are a frequent target of criminals. Cardholders can help with fraud prevention with these guidelines.

Store fuel card safely.

For fraud prevention, keep fleet card in a secure location and never leave it out in the open.

Keep PINs private.

PIN information should always be put in a separate place from the card.

Keep cards to yourself.

Do not share the card or PIN with anyone not authorized to use the card.

Report fleet card fraud.

If your card is lost or stolen, be sure to report this immediately.

Check transactions.

Contact the fleet manager immediately to report payment fraud or any questionable transactions.

Be wary at fuel pumps.

Credit card fraud at fuel pumps is not uncommon. If something doesn’t look right, pay inside.
