Avoid scams with your credit / debit machine now. Check out this article from CBC news
You can activate a security feature with your credit / debit machine that allows you to create a password before someone can access the administrative controls on your device. In this case, the scammer used a pre-programmed ‘credit card' and inserted it into the point of sale (POS) device. The card is actually a fake “administrative card,” which gives them complete access to the terminal, and allows them to manually enter in an alternative, usually stolen, credit card number.
The scammer walks away without using any of their money for the purchase. And the clinic owner is stuck with the bill.
When the purchase is discovered as fraudulent, the vendor has to pay back to the credit card company whatever the amount that the scammer entered into your POS device.
You will also likely receive a “chargeback” fee from the credit card processor.
Do you know who manages the POS password in your clinic? Who is the back-up person?
Do you maintain the passwords in a secure, corporate, password manager service?
