ALERT from Piraeus for theft of credit card information

We just got a message from a friend of iGuRu.gr mentioning a possible theft of Mastercard credit card details. The message reached his mobile phone via SMS from Piraeus:

piraios - ALERT from Piraeus for stealing credit card information

The friend of iGuRu.gr informed us with a message stating:

I was just informed by sms about the cancellation of my card in Piraeus and on my phone they reported that "Mastercard informed about the theft of credit card details, in which yours is also possible"

Note that this alert may not be important, as if they steal a number of cards from "one row", they usually cancel all "this row" cards, as our friend learned after an additional investigation talking to someone banking on the phone.

According to the same source, the SMS was the result of an update from the Mastercard organization. Of course we do not know where the leak came from, or if anything further is made public. There is a case to just "bury" it. At the moment it does not exist as news anywhere, and we thought of publishing it.

Did you get a message? Please inform us.

We thank the friend of iGuRu.gr for the immediate information.


The bank contacted us via Twitter to ask if it could help with something. We have updated this publication to mention the exemplary interest of the Bank.

  • SMS in the year 2020 says "visit a store in Piraeus"? My vision is good;! In other words, why can't the card be canceled and replaced online or by phone? Let me enjoy digitization. And let me not talk about the 6 € that the bank will bite again for the reissue of the card…
