Card Fraud Rates Continue to Increase as USA Debit Card Payments Nearly Double Credit Card Payments – SmartMetric Makes Card Based Payments Safer Using Biometrics

NEW YORK, NY — (Marketwired) — 11/24/14 — SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) – Debit card payments exceeded the number of credit card payments for the first time around 2004. By 2012, the number of debit card payments had reached 47.0 billion — much higher than the 26.2 billion credit card payments in the same year.*

A global fraud study by ACI Worldwide and the Aite Group, also highlighted that nearly 25 percent of consumers changed financial institutions due to dissatisfaction after experiencing fraud.

SmartMetric has created a better and more secure credit and debit card that uses a person–s own fingerprint to activate the card. Built inside the card is a miniature fingerprint reader that is used to scan a person–s fingerprint in order to identify the user before the card is able to be used for a transaction. SmartMetric uses the individual–s biometrics as the ultimate token in the payments process.
