An awful lot of people are still falling for this type of scam, don’t let yourself be one of them!

3-D Secure is an XML-based protocol designed to be an added layer of security for online credit and debit card transactions. It was developed by Visa with the intention of improving the security of Internet payments and offered to customers as the Verified by Visa service. Services based on the protocol have also been adopted by MasterCard, under the name MasterCard SecureCode, and by JCB International as J/Secure. American Express has added SafeKey to UK and Singapore on 8 November 2010.
3-D Secure adds an authentication step for online payments.
3-D Secure should not be confused with the Card Security Code which is a short numeric code that is printed on the card.
