Young Canadians Risky...with Their Finances

A Visa Canada spokesman says younger Canadians are creating opportunity for fraud by engaging in risky behaviour with their financial information. A Visa poll to mark the start of fraud prevention month finds nearly half of 18-to-34 year-old respondents have texted their credit or debit card numbers. Almost half of this demographic group also shared their payment card information via email, loaned their cards and didn't keep their PIN confidential. Older Canadians tend not to overshare quite as much, with 32 per cent of those 25 and older admitting they shared personal information online.
