Discovery Bank Fix Credit Card Purchase Issues

When making purchases online you will be asked to enter a CVV or credit Card Verification Value. This 3 digit number helps protect from fraudulent usage.

For what appears to be several days Discovery Bank credit cards users (or even hackers) were able to use any 3 numbers to facilitate payments if they had the Discovery Bank credit card number.

The glitch does not seem to have applied to Discovery accounts managed by FNB.

There are also reports of a lack of OTPs being provided or required during this time as well for some transactions. Fortunately, these teething issues were eventually sorted out and the security measures restored and no one has yet reported any fraudulent activity.

Discovery Bank has slowly been rolling out new services and offerings to thousands of new clients each month.
