Re: Gift Cards

This one might actually be true. I also vaguely recall someone (it was a lady who apparently was knowledgeable about credit card fraud) being interviewed on TV (CNBC ?), and she acknowledged this problem with gift cards. I didn't catch the whole interview and didn't think of it again until my friend e-mailed me. And I don't know how prevalent this type of fraud is . Just to play it safe, though, I am going to start buying all future gift cards from the clerks - not the ones hanging out in the open where the public can access the numbers.
