    I would say that paying with a card is quite dangerous in terms of privacy - the bank knows all your moves and habits, what you buy, where you go and when you go. I'm not comfortable with that to say the least.

    So, what do you think?
    Intellectually I can understand your concern but as a twenty something in 2013 I just don't care. I accept that my privacy is less encompassing than it used to be and that it will likely continue to become more flexible in the future. Why? I love my debit card, I love my GPS, and I love facebook. I'll trade whatever it is I've lost for those any day.

    Since my current cards pay back 1.5% and in some cases (Amazon purchases) 3%, I use the card for everything legal that I purchase.

    Basically, what I hear you saying is that due to the kindness of an unknown bank employee, you had ~$1k forgiven.

    If he/she had been in a grumpy mood ... ? Or if it happens again, and they see you've already had this trouble before ... ?

    I expect it's more a matter of bank policy rather than the mood of the customer service person.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The only downfall is my favorite hamburger joint doesn't take debit/credit cards. On the rare occasion I go in there I may stop by the bank and pull out a couple bucks.
    That's exactly what I do. I never carry cash. I never go into debt. There's nothing to worry about and I'm not paranoid. And absolutely everyone takes plastic or I just don't shop there, but I haven't run into that problem in years.

    no they have a policy to follow, i called the bank they informed me to fill out the fraud paperwork and identify the false claims and that was that and that i must also file a police report and fax it to them.

    very simply actually, if it happens again they follow protocol and procedures again
