How Much Of Your Personal Info Is Printed On Duty-Free Receipts From Airports, Including Changi Airport?
An Australian man made an alarming discovery about duty-free receipts in Kuala Lumpur recently. But what's it like at Changi Airport?
Not many people realise this but when you’re paying for your shopping at the duty-free zone in the airport and hand over your travel documents to the cashier, it's not just for fun. Yes, somewhere, somehow, all your information goes into the system, but how much of your personal information is printed on the actual receipt — that same little piece of paper that you’ve thoughtlessly thrown away countless times?
You’ll think twice about trashing these receipts when you realise just how much of your confidential information is shown on some of them. In the worst-case scenario, you could be putting yourself at risk of identity theft. This is what travellers around the world are now worried about, thanks to one man’s cautionary video which recently went viral.
