BRUTE FORCING IS A HACK
Here let us also tell you for information that the most common way to hack cards is brute forcing. This method is being said that it is very fast, and can complete its work in a few seconds.

This means that the criminals guess the card number and their CVV. Here let us also tell you for information that the initial 6-8 numbers are the ID number of the card issuer. After this, criminals have to guess only 7-9 numbers, because you get only 16-digit only number on the card. Now it takes only around 6 seconds for criminals to do this guess and they hack your card.
CHECK BANK STATEMENT REGULARLY
