Possible fraudulent payments involving UK Credit Cards
Around Greece, it seems there have been unauthorised deductions to settle payments to DEH using personal UK credit cards .
This has been happening in the past couple of months.
Importantly, those cards said to have have expired. It is not known if these were recently expired cards. That is the bad news. The good news is that according to reports, the bank in question (the name has not been disclosed) has refunded any fraudulent payments and the fraud department of the same bank is investigating.
I am hope this does not sound like an April fools joke as this interesting report came to our attention from the local Kissamos newspaper (Chania end of the island) which was published on April 1st, 2021.
Just to be safe, if you use a UK Bank credit card to settle your payments with DEH, the Greek Electricity Company, then just check your account with them and see that you are not one of the affected consumers.
