Liability for fraudulent transactions will move to the weakest link in the transaction. If a consumer uses a magnetic stripe in an EMV-capable terminal and the transaction turns out to be fraudulent, liability will rest with the issuer of the original magnetic stripe card. However, if a user uses a magnetic stripe card for a fraudulent transaction on a terminal which cannot process EMV, the liability for the fraud will rest with the merchant.
