Like the FED, credit card companies (VISA, MasterCard, American Express, etc.) and banks are not your friend. They work fraud into their business plan. It’s just a cost of doing business. They don’t really care who’s swiping the card and running up debt, as long as it happens. It’s their lifeblood.
This is not new. A blog I wrote in 2010, Spy-Chipped Drivers Licenses surprised the heck out of me with over 1100 hits in 1 day, so I decided (hat-tip Nancy!) it was time to shine a light on it again. It just seems to be one thing we can all do without!
As the shift Sergeant on the old Hill Street Blues used to say, “Hey, let’s be careful out there”.
