Re: New Bank Cards

[QUOTE=Norway;620876]Wife has just had one , not that it bothers us much unless we go to the U k.
I was just wondering, as I think you hold them by the terminal, No Pin??? whats to stop somebody using yours if they have stolen it , if they only have to hold it by the terminal ???[/QUOTE]




I was told that if your card was used 3 times in fairly quick succession, another purchase wouldn't be allowed. So the worst that could happen, is that a thief could only make 3 small-ish withdrawels.

Really?!! That is scary..

Re: New Bank Cards

Yes, didn't they have trouble with M&S machines charging folk who were just passing by. I only use mine if the cashier suggests it, but, I'd rather go back to chip & pin or even cash, you knew where you were with cash, if you didn't have it in your purse you couldn't spend it!

Re: New Bank Cards

The chip can be disabled by carefully drilling or melting with soldering iron through the antenna - google for instructions. Bit drastic though as I can see some advantage if used carefully and protected while in your pocket.

Re: New Bank Cards

Yes, had a MasterCard one for a while, and an American Express one, now bank card is contactless. Very handy.
