  • My greatest annoyance in life is getting asked for I'D when using a credit card...

    They don't ask for ID if you sign the card like scribbling some random **************** on the back is a 100% garuntee of your true identity. No one who has ever asked me for an ID has yet been able to explain the signature thing to me

    In fact - the next time I get asked for ID for lack of signature I'm going to sign the card right in front of the person checkin me out and say "there you go - I'm legit"

      Well, I agree - if I got asked for ID every time I use your card it'd be a real problem.

          A handful of places I go to ask for ID with a CC purchase, regardless of whether or not the card is signed. The idea is to protect you from getting ripped off.

            Yes but in the situation I'm talking about a signed card is as good as an ID - so in other words if I steal someones card so long as it's signed I can proceed to use it fraudulently. Never had a place ask me for ID for a signed card. I mean how does the signature on the back prove anything? Maybe if the clerk compared the signature to the one on my lisence?? But they don't...the person behind the counter has absolutely no frame of reference for what my signature looks like nor is it likely that they're a certified handwriting expert

            I got a replacement card yesterday that still has the activation sticker on the front - the guy helping me goes "I have to see an ID because this activation sticker" so I pulled the sticker off the front in front of the guy and he was totally cool with it

            Man - he should get a gig with the CIA

              I was kind of annoyed when 50 houses near mine were flattened by a tornado earlier this summer, but I gotta admit, this whole credit card verification fiasco is definitely the greatest of any evil. Much mojo sent.

                              I've found it to be haphazard. Some places ask all of the time, some never.
                              One place I frequent only asks for ID when you show a CC without your pic on it. That makes sense to me.
                              There can never be a perfect plan. What's perfect for one human bean ain't perfect for the next one. Cuz he's a lentil.
