My chip and pin didn't work on a self-checkout in tesco one afternoon, so the dude came over to check my signature

turns out I'd forgotten to sign the back of the card

so I asked him for a pen, signed it in front of him, and he accepted that

great security

It was only because it was highlighted that he needed to check the signature and he was a bit of a jobsworth

my swedish bank is charging me 35 SEK for getting cash from a uk cash machine

i always loved my bank but this is hurting me a bit

also i'm pretty sure they didn't charge me when i used french cash machines...

probably, I don't know, but I have the impression that it gets difficult since she told them the card number and she has to prove the fraudulent use. but that's maybe different between card number abuse and stolen credit card.

I give my card over the phone to order food all the time. If they try anything they dont have the security code on the back of the card and they dont have my name.

Plus itd be easy to catch them. Plus a business would go under quick if it was known for cc fraud.

they'd probably just get their terminal revoked and be cash-only before they got known for it

which might also kill them

but yeah, merchants pay a ton of card processing fees that the bank sets aside for cases of fraud... the costs of paying out/investigating/etc for the bank are already built into the whole thing so they don't really put up much of a fight about it when you tell them

Not really. Sometimes the bank catches weird purchases before you. My card was temp shut down when I tried to use it in Montreal. I had used it the night before at home and I drove up super early so I guess the window in time was a red flag. They called me and it got cleared up.

it's funny like that

this little thing is the cutest little thing but i have a feeling that would be exactly what would happen because she's a tad on the typical boring / airy / faux-posh girly girl side which unfortunately i can only pretend to entertain for a short period of time
