U.S. (KXAN) — New chip credit cards many of us have received are supposed to keep your information more secure. But some are using the transition to rip you off.
The Federal Trade Commission says people who want to steal your identity are sending out fake emails pretending to be credit card issuers.
The emails ask people to update their account by sending a response with personal information.
Authorities warn there is no reason a card issuer needs to contact you by email.
