  • Double Swiping

    All retail merchants in Singapore are required by the Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS) and the Card Schemes (i.e. American Express, Diners Club, JCB, MasterCard, UnionPay and Visa) to stop capturing and storing sensitive payment card data (or cardholder data) encoded on the magnetic stripes of your credit, debit and charge cards. If you suspect that a Singapore-based retail merchant has done so (e.g. by swiping your card more than once), email ABS at or visit for more details.
