Be cautious around swipe-only terminals and kiosks.

Card skimming, the practice of illegally collecting data from debit or credit cards using bogus devices attached to ATMs, POS terminals or self-serve kiosks, remains a problem, and Casera members are urged to be cautious around swipe-only merchant terminals and movie theatre kiosks.

Casera Member Cards are chip-enhanced, but there are still some terminals in operation that are swipe-only. Interac’s deadline for chip-only terminals is September 2016 so until then, exercise caution around swipe-only terminals. As well, skimming devices have occasionally been detected on local movie theatre kiosks.
