    Not to deviate from my post but you must understand this. The Consumerist is one of my favorite web sites.

    If you are one of those people who refuses to sign your credit card, be aware that it is invalid and merchants can and will refuse to accept it.

    Unless your name is "Check ID," that's not a valid signature. End of story.

    On the flip side... I have NEVER had a merchant check the signature yet. Been using credit cards for a couple decades now.

    Since a crook doesn't know your pin number, I doubt he can use the card, but it is a pain to lose one.

    My ATM card is also a Visa card, and that could be used.
    People cant use your card at the ATM but they can go nuts at BP, mobil, best buy, and other places that the user can just push credit.

    never had my card refused, although I believe your post. I will sign my card when a retailer refuses it for the reason you state.

    Until then my name will remain ASK FOR ID

    I left my card in the machine once... I went to the bank, got money out, went to the grocery store and realized I didn't have it. Needless to say I had a panic moment until I went back to the bank and the lady told me the machine just sucks it back in and she retrieved it for me. I always double check now.

    I'm not a huge fan of the ATM machine anymore though and if I do use it I make sure I'm armed. It seems like there are more and more reports of people getting robbed while using ATMs in this area.

    Most of the ATMs I use now have just the "swipe" sensor. My bank still had the old style "eat the card" types in the lobby. One Saturday evening I was getting some running around cash out when I saw an older lady at the adjacent machine almost in tears because she couldn't figure it out. Being the good samaritan, I asked if she would like some help. I quickly got her straightened out and returned to my machine. Which, you guessed it, had swallowed my card for security. Here I am on Saturday night, not a penny in my pocket and I the bank is closed until Monday morning.

    Talk about Karma backfiring on you!

    You have to contact the bank in the morning, show your identification, pick up your card, and apologize for being a complete idiot.

    I'm speaking from experience.
    Why, I can't *believe* you did that! ...um... like I did, too.

    I heard the beeping, but wanted to record the transaction before I left the ATM (this was during one of my many aborted attempts at responsible recordkeeping). About the time I reached for the card, the machine stopped beeping and sucked it back in. I was *not* pleased.
