Dynamics Inc., will have a demonstration at the Alternative Payment System Innovations and unveil the Dynamic Credit Card. Billions of dollars are lost each year due to fraudulent practices and this card comes with a host of security benefits which can contain skimming practices by fraudsters.
The anti-skimming device by the Dynamic credit card automatically writes a new security code on the magnetic stripes on every purchase made. For every purchase online, a new code can be added and traditional 3 or 4-digit code can be replaced.
The Dynamic card curtails both domestic as well as international skimming without actually changing any card reader or causing any impact on the merchant system.
The efficiency of the security system can be beefed up by combining it with other technologies as well. For instance, the code from Dynamic in addition to the Dynamics? Hidden Card interface where it is unlocked using a code, is used to activate the card.
Frauds that are associated with lost or stolen cards could be curtailed with Dynamics codes. Consumers may want to activate the card using a code, while some may want to use the points earned. With the Dynamic card the consumer gets to enjoy fraud protection at the highest level without actually impacting their usage in any way.
The Dynamics card is loaded with a card-programmable magnetic stripe, which is the world's first. This can be read by the magnetic reader at the point of sale. At any given point in time, the information on this stripe can be changed. It requires a battery change and will last for about four years.
