View Full Version : Warning for Shoppers Who Use Credit Cards

November 25th, 2014, 11:44 AM
There was a warning mentioned on the news regarding use of credit cards at stores. Especially if you're in a line at the check-out. Unscrupulous people are using their phones to take pics of people's credit cards when a person reaches up to swipe the card. I imagine this could be an issue with all the shoppers on Black Friday & the coming holidays, or any time. Just use caution & make sure to keep your card covered with your hand so others can't see the numbers, etc. Identity theft is rampant, so shoppers beware.

I plan to stay out of the stores on Black Friday & Thanksgiving Day. Too much madness & rudeness just to save a few bucks. JCY

Great advice, JCY. Thanks for the update. Especially do NOT use debit cards they are attached to your checking account. If you use plastic, use a credit card as you will have some protection against fraud. Debit cards do not.
