Customers and Topups247 have been extremely aware that topping up at an high street outlet is thwart with danger and the worry that their bank card details can be stolen by unscrupulous shop personnel, the first they know about it is that someone has purchased a holiday to Dubai. Not all high street mobile top up outlets can be said to be dishonest but why take the risk when you can top up safely and securely directly from Topups247.
The person who works in a corner shop, garage, or phone store is only as honest as their next pay check. Experience shows that no-one to whom one’s credit or debit card is entrusted is beyond temptation: and with a mobile top up machine being one of the easiest card locations to hack data from, the intensity of top up related worry, if not actual top up related identity theft, is more than most. What Topups247 has done is remove that worry entirely, by creating an online instant top up service whose data vault stores credit card details in the same way as a certain famous Internet payment service.
What does that mean for the security of one’s bank details? Well, an Orange customer making an Orange top up from, say, his or her local corner shop (or even Orange store) has no control over what happens to the details stored on his or her card once it hits the machine. The Topups247 site, which stores those details in a locked site area, returns that control by ensuring that the customer who wants to make an Orange top up (or any other type of instant top up), is legally protected in the event of identity theft. Effectively, a customer handing over credit card details (in order to use the Topups247 site, it is necessary to register and leave one’s card information) is doing exactly the same thing that they would if they signed up for an account with an online payment protection service.
There are other aspects of security, of course, that can’t be captured by a simple piece of plastic. Personal safety, for one – which is another thing the Topups247 mobile top up site has addressed. No-one likes roaming the streets in the watches of a night, particularly with their valuable mobile handset on their person. A customer making an instant top up online doesn’t have to worry about a thing. That’s particularly good news for the media’s favourite example of the “vulnerable” modern citizen – the lone young woman. Who, for instance, wouldnt want their teenage daughter heading out to a petrol station at midnight to make a mobile top up, when she could simply log on to her computer and do it in the safety of her own home?
Topups247 is a mobile topups dedicated website that send SMS top-up vouchers for all main mobile networks straight to a customer’s phone.
