    Dear PCI Guru,
    I am looking for your expert advise to resolve one query, what is the likelihood of duplication of credit / debit card number (PAN)?
    Is the any possibility the bank / issuer, issue the same number (PAN) to two different persons.

      According to the card brands, it is not a possibility but as we all know accidents can happen. I have never heard of such a thing ever occurring. However, you need to remember that PANs do get reused. PANs that are used in fraud or were used by deceased persons will be taken out of service for a period of time and then placed back in service years later. That is why organizations are told not to test with hot list numbers or similar because they can be brought back by a brand without notice.

        Dear Team,
        What is the likelihood to get the wrong result if i search full PAN through truncated (first 6 and last 4) PAN?

        Reason is our Fraud team received the truncated PAN from the government authorities / Banks for fraud investigation and Ingenico e-portal display masked (first 6 and last 4) PAN.

        Not really sure how many false positive hits you would get with only first 6/last 4.

If your organization has a PCI opportunity, is in need of assistance with a PCI issue or if you would like the PCI Guru to speak at your meeting, you can contact the PCI Guru at pciguru AT gmail DOT com.

I do allow vendors to post potential solutions in response to issues that I bring up in posts. However, the PCI Guru does not endorse any specific products, so "Caveat Emptor" - let the buyer beware. Also, if I feel that the response is too "sales-ee", I reserve the right to edit or not even authorize the response.
