Another issue regarding gift cards are the growing concerns from retailers and other businesses about what can be done to prevent gift cards from being exploited by fraudsters. Gift card information can either be stolen from their rightful owners by fraudsters or they can be purchased with stolen credit card information. In recent years, cybercriminals have increased their efforts to take advantage of fraudulent gift cards as they are simple to exploit with automated brute-force bot attacks.[15] The most common form of gift card fraud is committed through the act of stealing card information for activated cards with an existing balance by attacking a retailer's systems which store gift card data. Once a gift card has been compromised, the fraudster will then check the balance through online customer portals before using the funds or reselling on the secondary gift card market.[16]
I’ve included the formula companies because they do offer pregnancy and baby freebies, but just be warned they will have subtle formula and follow on milk messages, which you don’t need – even if you bottle feed with Infant formula, it’s better to stick with the first formula rather than switch to follow on milk. They aren’t allowed to advertise their infant milk before 6 months, so getting you on board whilst pregnant is a way of getting round the advertising ban. Onto the offers – Cow & Gate offer a free pregnancy diary and cuddly cow when you join up to their baby club. Similarly, SMA infant formula have a pregnancy club which offers surprises, information and competitions. Aptamil has offers, expert advice and discounts.
