2. How should I avoid any damage to or misuse of the card?

To prevent damage to the card, don't keep it in an area having a continuous magnetic field, for example, near a TV; don't scratch or tamper with the magnetic strip that contains coded information for the security of your card; don't bend the card or keep two cards with their magnetic strips facing each other; and keep the card away from extreme heat and direct sunlight.

Never hand over your card to any stranger or share its details with anyone, not even to some one claiming to represent the card-issuing bank or its associates.

Never reveal your PIN (personal identification number) to anyone; don't keep the card and the ATM PIN together. Surrender the card only to a designated official of the bank after cutting it diagonally into two pieces across the magnetic strip.

Keep a record of your credit card numbers and telephone numbers for reporting lost or stolen cards.
