If you get an alert randomly from an anonymous account, before you start singing "Baba God answer prayer...", find out who it was that sent it.

All transactions traceable to fraudulent accounts & owners will be listed and some explanations will be required.
I have seen people thanking God for some money they weren't expecting and didn't bother to know who was that generous to dash them money.

This is not the time. You have to be able to explain whatever comes into your account...and especially what you spend.
If any money lands in your account, find out who it was - don't be a victim of fraudulent transfers and money laundering.

Being mentioned on a list of beneficiaries of fraudulent proceeds can be a red flag...your account may be restricted or watch listed for a while.

Your payment card - debit, credit or prepaid - contains loads of information.

Two types mainly:
Those that can be read electronically
Those that can be read physically

Let's focus on the easiest and most vulnerable - those that can be read physically.
Your payment card has:
Bank name
PAN - Primary Account Number
Cardholder name
Expiry Date
Card brand
CVV - Card Verification Value

A combination of these data are used to consummate financial transactions and therefore need to be protected.

Thread 1) Jewish-American voters who support Israel should feel betrayed. After waffling during the election, new US House member @IlhanMN tells @muslimgirl (aka #MuslimMeanGirls) that she "believes in and supports the @BDSmovement." the "exclusive": muslimgirl.com/50283/ilhan-om…
2) For Muslim Americans, like me, this is no surprise. @IlhanMN is allied with @lsarsour and @CAIR_National, all virulently anti-Israel...and yes as a result anti-Semitic, despite their protests that being anti-Israel is not anti-Semitic. It is. thejc.com/news/world/i-s…
3) No surprise to us 2 @MuslimGirl publishes pro-BDS spin. Palestinian-American editor Amani Al-Khatahtbeh @xoamani tries 2 #girlWash her anti-Israel pro-BDS rage w/collabs with naive @TeenVogue. But her anti-Semitism traces back to her Rutgers' days jakebinstein.com/blog/amanis-fi…
