Yet the guy that charges 6 grand worth of server equipment on my credit card gets away.

To beat those black market cigarettes because drug dealers don't card.

I hate thieves, but I actually think this guy had the right idea.  Keep purchases small, so the card owner is less likely to notice.

My mom got called by her credit card co over the weekend cuz someone charged a car wash yesterday. Keeping it small won't prevent notice.

While the cardholder might not notice, most decent issuers have solid fraud monitoring.

When I worked at FICO, their Falcon Fraud Manager product (which can build from 30 days of charge activity a profile with almost 99% accuracy) typically triggers on small purchases, especially at gas stations and liquor stores. Most thieves will run small transactions to see if the card is still active, then move on to something big.

So, go big or don't go at all.

1. each individual charge is listed right on the statement so unless you're a real moron...

b. thieves put card-readers on gas pumps, so pay inside.

I found ten bucks checking out at the super market today. I asked the lady who had just checked out if it was hers, she said no, but it might have been the guy who just left. I never saw the guy. so I just kept the 10 spot.
/not for any of my previous posts, but in this instance, am I scum for not trying to see if the guy was just outside the store?

Subby had remarkable restraint in not saying something about an EBT card in the headline for added shiats and giggles.

Not really, imo. I would imagine for a lot of people the answer to the question "Did you drop this?" would be "Yes." even if it's not true.

Subs must not smoke. That right there is about $120 for the two cartons.
 
2013-10-14 06:27:53 PM
At today's prices it's two cartons or that one Rolex. Priorities.

I'm amazed at how often this occurs. I had someone buying 500 dollars worth of Gift Certificates at every walgreens 1 county over on my Credit Card.

Did they manufacture a copy of my card to get it done?

Maybe he was trying to get the cigs to fleece the elderly snowbirds coming in from NY.. 2 cartons of cigs in NY go for what, 30-40 grand?

Probably just had the info and keyed it in. Possible whoever was working that transaction was involved.

And this is why my wife hates when customers throw a fit, over getting ID'ed for a large gift card purchase by credit card.  I've never been bothered by having to produce my ID for a credit card purchase.  I usually don't put my wallet away till the transaction is done in case they ask, several times I would hold it for the cashier so they didn't have to ask.

That's still like $200

Possibly- it's not hard to put cc info on any card.
