Re: New Bank Cards

I was using contactless card when buying petrol, it was a bit tricky at first but I persevered, now they do not even bother with contactless and automatically push the card into the machine .... if only I could remember PIN numbers!!!!!

Exactly the same thing that stopped them using them when they only had a signature. You reporting it as lost or stolen!

Not quite the same is it ? you have to enter your pin, what do you do with the ones you hold by the terminal?

It is exactly the same, before PINs you signed and they checked your signature against the one written on the card.

Exactly, I didn't raise the matter of PINs you did.

I'll type it really slowly for you, the security on contactless cards is no different from the time you had to sign for your card purchases (before the advent of PINs). It relies on you reporting the card missing.
