Default RD and stolen credit card numbers

Just wanted to give a heads up reminder. I just learned that my card is being used in PA and NJ. Thanx to the breathen that gave the heads up last month about the breach in security at resturaunt depot. I notified my card company of the possibility and they closed the card down pretty quick when all the out of state charges started. Check your statements if you used RD in September thru Novemeber. I hate these scum and hope bad things come their way. keith

All of this nonsense about checking IDs at registers "for your protection" hides the fact that most credit card thefts are done by store employees, as was the case at RD. They are not supposed to store things like your CCV number, but malware in the POS can capture everything.

Giving them your driver's license just makes identity theft easier. (Most credit card merchant agreements prohibit merchants from requesting an ID at a point of sale, something I cheerfully remind the stores of when I am being a troublemaker, which admittedly is most of the time. )

i dont quite understand that part.. all of my credit cards, in the signature box, I have printed in marker 'REQUEST PHOTO ID'. I always figured its easier to duplicate my signature than my ugly face. i show it to them from my wallet and dont turn it over to them. Why does that make it easier for identity theft?

I've been to RD 3 times in the last week. Never did they do more than look at my photo on the driver's license. Nor did they look at the back of the credit card for the CCV number.

#1 Read your CC agreement - your card isn't valid unless signed and if the bank determines that your card was used fradulently unsigned they may choose to deny you reimbursement for fraudulent charges against your account.
#2 Every time you show ID (which is a violation of the store's merchant agreement - they aren't allowed to request it - unless your card is unsigned and then only to verify that you sign your card with the correct name) The cashier (who only looks like a slack jawed yokel) has access to your name, your full birth date, your address, and your zip code.

I always find it hilarious when the cashiers at Lowe's ask me for the last four digits of the card number used. Obviously no one ever explained to them that the whole point in the POS system asking for that is to ensure that the cashier was holding the card in his hand at the time of sale. Personally, I just think they should throw those self-swipe terminals in a river.

If you ever want to read an interesting book on credit card fraud, read the book about Kevin Poulsen called Kingpin. It's a good read and it gives great insight in to how a lot of the credit card fraud is done. Point Of Sale systems was one of the primary ways he did it. His network of thieves used shoppers who would take the stolen (forged) cards and buy stuff at the stores and then sell it on ebay to turn it in to cash.

RD has never ever asked to see my drivers license when I use my card there even after this incident happened.

I think they got me too. Had some fraudulent charges show up on the card I used last month at the Depot.

I just saw this. Wish I had seen the previous posting. My card was stolen last week and I was wondering how they got it. That was probably it. I hate thieves.

They cleaned out our BBQ account but thankfully it was all returned. Aggravating to say the least!
