No I.D., No Problem!!!!

Hmmm... which card should I use?

I like this one!!

I have a beef that I need to get off of my chest. I am so tired of going into stores and not getting my i.d. checked when I use my credit card or write a check. I recently had my ATM/Credit Card number stolen and $1,500 taken from my bank account. I still had my card on me so whoever had stolen the number got it when I used my card as a credit card, not ATM card. I found out the thief or theives wracked up $1,000 at Walmart and $500 at Home Depot.

When my Dad and I went into Walmart and he used his credit card, I kindly asked the wonderful, caring, employee why he did not check my dad's I.D. "Hey", he said to me, "I only do so if the credit card company comes back saying to do so." "I'm just doin my job."

So I just want to say thank you to the wonderful Walmart, Home Depot, grocery store, and any other employees for caring about their customers. I really appreciate it and my bank does too. Thank goodness I am not responsible for the stolen funds but I had to fill out forms, close out my account, and go through a whole lot of crap just because someone was just doin their job!

I totally agree! I worked retail for 9 years and we ALWAYS checked ID! The kicker I see now is when they don't even make you sign for it! That is just inviting people to steal from you. Sorry this happened to you.
