I'm suing the next business I enter. The doorknob has my fingerprints. That's a violation of my privacy.
 
2011-04-18 08:54:05 PM
Ha, up until a few years ago one gas station near me would print the whole thing.

Awesome. Now if someone could just sue all the stupid places that ask for your SS# even though they don't need it.

Better to find digits on your receipt than in your burger.

Why not just tell them no? Wait... I'm not thinking like a lawyer, am I?

Why does he care if his credit card number gets stolen? He's only liable for the first $50 (and most CC companies waive that).

Back in high school, I got home one day and picked up the local paper. No idea what the article was about, I assume saving money, but the front page had a big picture of someone's receipt from a grocery store. In plain view was their entire credit card number and expiration date. Called the paper up and let them know and got an "Oh crap did we really do that? shiat, we did. Thanks kid." response.

Yup.

But you'll find that many folks who herald themselves as "privacy experts" have issues with the world that far, far exceed those of understandable worry about identity theft and the like.

Back Yard Burgers. (new window).. and he's eaten there more than once since March 19? WTH, eat something different jerkoff. Lincoln is at least 240,000, 250,000 people, with growing Hispanic and Vietnamese population. Have to be at least a couple pho joints or taqerias. Jerk.

/yes I will tell you how to eat and you will like it

The Act cited in the article appears to prohibit printing card expiration dates on receipts.

Keith requested to make it a "class action" suit, and is seeking damages of $100 and $1,000 per violation

Wat? Soooo, $1100?

Incorrect. You are not liable for any identity theft up to 25k, after that they figure you ought to be keeping track.

/or at least that is what chase used to tell us.

darkscout: Ha, up until a few years ago one gas station near me would print the whole thing.


Station down the road wouldn't have the whole number, but it would have your full name, last four, and exp. date. I stopped paying at the pump there once I realized it.

I once had a job where after ordering our product over the phone, we would keep the persons credit card on file. Any employee who was pissed off at a customer enough was capable of pulling the customers credit card number, name, expiration date, even the security code.

Be nice to your service employees. You never know what kid of access they might have.

/no abuse of the system ever occurred to my knowledge.

I ordered some beef jerky online a few months ago and had it sent to a family member (long story). I was a little disturbed to find out that the receipt they included had my full CC#, expiration date, and CVV2 on it. Nice.

Our stations printed the whole thing until everyone was forced to truncate.
Now we get to pay substantial software fees whenever we're told "Lol, new PCI compliance requirements."
 
2011-04-18 09:08:33 PM
As far as I recall, any receipt from any restaurant I've ever eaten in had the last four digits of my credit card and the expiration date on it. I guess this loser has only ever eaten at the one place.

They ask for an SS#, I give them an SS#.

/ not my SS#
// just switch a couple digits, it's not so hard - and you know the exact number you gave them.

Card number truncation is fine. Exp_date or CCV - not so much.

It is beyond retarded to think that credit/debit card fraud is something to be scared of. Simply choose a bank that offers fraud protection and keep most of your money in savings.

I bet most people here have had their card stolen. mine was after ordering some penis enlargement pills vitamins, csb

I hear the receipt checkers at WalMart memorize your cc number, what you bought and the total price. Then at the end of the day they sell it to a Russian scammer website.
They make a lot of money doing that, how do you think they keep their prices so low.

dj_bigbird: Why does he care if his credit card number gets stolen? He's only liable for the first $50 (and most CC companies waive that).


If they detect the slightest hint that the person who stole you cc# is known to you, they will claim that the usage was authorized by you. No waiver for you. Yes, I'm bitter. No, I never gave anyone permissions to use my cc#.

And you spend hours updating utility bill auto-payments, every vendor who has your cc# for on-line payments, etc., etc.

Do you even know every vendor who has your cc# in their database, and will charge your next order/renewal to the old number.



/ and then you fight the late fees when they still charge the auto-payments to your old cc#

I'm working at a restaurant that puts all the customer's credit card numbers on their receipt, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies. To my surprise nobody ever complains about it...maybe I should show my boss this article before he gets sued.
 
2011-04-18 09:19:25 PM
If only there was some other form of payment to alleviate this problem. Maybe we should petition our congressmen to get the government to create some sort of note. Some sort of note that guarantees that the US government would honor a given amount printed on that small piece of paper. Think about it, we could purchase goods/services with this newly created currency!

Yeah, some of our smaller and mid-level wholesale customers have us keep all their cc info on file and process the payments for them.
We actually hate it because cc discounts on 5 figure transactions suck ass after awhile.

Was watching some old 1950's episodes of The Price Is Right with Bill Cullen as the host.

The home viewer contest went exactly like this, name changed due to my poor memory:

"Well, tonight we are calling Mrs Evelyn Wood of Maple Street in Pocatello, Idaho." Then as Bill is dialing he says the phone number out loud.

Why don't they do this nowadays so we could all call the winners and congratulate them?
 
2011-04-18 09:20:15 PM
This is why I only use stolen credit cards when I go out to eat.
 
2011-04-18 09:20:29 PM
As someone who had to deal with people who spent more than they have, and had to post rebates, identity thieves can do exactly squat with the last four numbers and expiration date. I could barely do what I had to with that info.

Looking at this thread and the facebook thread, I think fark is getting kinda cynical.
What happened to the happy-go-lucky carefree fark I used to know?
