+1. That's why vendors and CC companies won't fix these issues as long as it doesn't deter business.

That's why we don't have a debit card, just credit cards. The consumer protections are so much better on them.

I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.

I just wish I could figure out how ours is happening as its always my BFs cards and its been happening 2-3 times a year since we moved to NC and it never happened in the 20 years we were in Illinois. We definitely know one time it was via one of those scanners as every card in his wallet was compromised...and all of them were used for $300 purchases at the local grocery store. Its annoying to constantly have to get new cards but I like the idea someone offered about keeping one for the automatic payments, that would at least make it easier to deal with.

Been using your credit card at Wendy's lately? They've been having a rolling series of compromises on their POS units.

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
