You are correct. How do I know? Because I have had my card refused at the US Post Office because it was not signed. However, that does not change my thinking that I refuse to sign the cards and instead place "SEE PHOTO ID" on my card.If there is a signature, it can be forged. If the criminal has no idea what my signature looks like, they can't exactly copy it. If that results in my card not being accepted at some places, then I will not use it at those places.dt,Have you read the fine print that comes with your credit cards? It says they are not valid unless they are signed. I think a merchants has every right to ask for a valid credit card when they are taking it for purchase of goods or services.A card that only has "see I.D." won't stop it from being used by someone else. There are many places like gas stations and grocery stores where the card can be swiped and used without a clerk even looking at the card. It can be used online to make purchases. Many places don't even look at the back of the card and it can be used then too. To me not signing the card is a false sense of security. Beside if someone get's my card, more than likely they are going to have my drivers license and that has my signature on it anyways. When our credit card was used by someone else, DH & I had our cards in our possession. We were contacted by the credit card company. There was no way we would have know that someone else was using our card until we got the bill. We do check every transaction on our credit card statement with our receipts. IMHO, that is everones best bet for making sure your card isn't stolen or used by someone else.Utahtea
