These are in fact the two main problems. The thieves are protected and the banks actually make money from fraud. The merchant loses. The banks and thieves are happy.
1. The Issuing Banks have no incentive to prevent fraud since they are able to turn the merchant into the victim.
2. An LA FBI Internet Fraud Agent told me they would not touch a case under Seven figures and the thieves know this.

I also go on-line and report the merchant violation to the card company.
There is another place where I am asked for information, apparently required by FTC regulations, and it opens everyone
to ID theft. The so called Red Lock Rules or Red Flag Rules. Designed to prevent fraud, they actually require many small
offices to collect information which if compromised can lead to ID theft.
We have a huge problem with the manner of issuance and use of Social Security Numbers and Credit Card Numbers.
Neither problem is insurmountable, but we are tolerant of a certain amount of background fraud and theft.
I don't have an answer. Don't like much of what Sig250 suggests, but I certainly see where he is coming from and
do have sympathy for the legitimate merchants caught in the middle.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

I don't know where you are getting your information. It is BS. Perhaps you could site a Visa/Mastercard Merchant rule, a state statue (any state will do) or a Federal law that prevents merchants from requesting positive identification for ANY transaction, even cash.

It is in fact not illegal to deny service to a person based on religion or in some cases, simply his looks. Most merchants will not serve persons wearing ski masks or vail that do not allow the merchant to see the face of person they are serving.
There is absolutely nothing that precludes a merchant from requiring positive identification in the form of a drivers license, a state issued picture Id or other valid ID requested before accepting a sale. The merchant may also ask Any person to leave his premise for Any reason.
The buyer, in turn is not obligated to furnish requested positive identification but should expect that he will walk out the door (or asked to leave) without service or merchandise from the seller.

You've got it backwards Hopyard. Merchant agreements require the merchant to verify ID, do any do it, no, not really. But it is part of the merchant contract that you must verify ID for everyone using a credit card.
