A blog reader texted me this morning about an incident he had with his Banco de Oro ATM Card. He then pointed me to his blog where he recounted the incident:
banco de oro’s (BDO) atm system lets
BDO cash card international cardholders
make balance inquiries and withdrawals
without the need for their personal identification number (PIN)!!!
*after inserting my card in a BDO atm machine
at Sotto St., Makati, to make a balance inquiry,
i mistakenly pressed the OK button before entering my PIN.
to my surprise, the machine took me to the selections menu
where i successfully made a balance inquiry and withdrawal !!!
this is a BIG concern for all such cardholders…
either the cards are defective
or bdo’s security measures aimed
at preventing fraud and theft
are flawed or have been breached.
bdo people! please look into this matter immediately!
*the anitokid asked four of his friends
to try their respective bdo cards
and all had the same results! tsk.
If you have a BDO card, do try it yourself and see if this also happens to you. The problem could be in their system ands not he cards. When it does, report it to their customer service asap.
