Definition of 'Credit Card Dump'

A credit card dump is a large batch of credit card numbers that has been stolen or compromised. The numbers are typically sold on the dark web or other black market forums.

Credit card dumps can be used to make fraudulent purchases, withdraw cash from ATMs, or open new credit card accounts. They can also be used to create counterfeit credit cards.

There are a number of ways to protect yourself from credit card dumps. First, make sure that your credit card information is secure. Keep your credit card numbers in a safe place, and never share them with anyone you don't trust. Second, use a credit card with a chip-and-PIN technology. This technology makes it more difficult for criminals to use your credit card number to make fraudulent purchases. Third, be aware of the signs of credit card fraud. If you notice any suspicious activity on your credit card statement, contact your credit card company immediately.

If you believe that your credit card number has been compromised, you should take the following steps:

* Contact your credit card company immediately.
* Close your credit card account and open a new one.
* File a police report.
* Place a fraud alert on your credit report.

By following these steps, you can help to protect yourself from the financial and identity theft risks associated with credit card dumps.
