You seem VERY naive!

This is the story of my life, pretty much.

I thought it was illegal to write check my id in lieu of a signature. But I'm not sure a cop would arrest you over something over that

I have had friends who are online vendors who go to great lengths to verify purchaser ID and even address (for online credit card purchases) because if it turns out to be CC theft/fraud, they (the business) eat the charge. Not the credit card company. Have heard this from other sources as well...

But you sell stuff online also. So I has confus.

your first sentence might be the answer. I have a service that does that for me, so I am free of any responsibilty if the card turns out to be stolen. I would think they do to but maybe not. The other issue is this new credit card standard that they use in europe but we are just converting to now. There is date by which, if your credit card processing is not converted to this new standard and you take credit cards, any fraudalent charges you have to eat.

I once had an Visa or MC suspend my card because I used it in Canada.

well that's a different country, so of course they suspended it. this was an hour outside the city and the card had already been used at other venues in the general area.

You were obviously on a buying spree with a stolen card.

Mine was me at a gas station. Fuckers.

Having your license means nothing. I was at the Apple store recently. No iD needed.
It's VERY easy.

technically, if your card is unsigned it is invalid.

if the card was unsigned then apple would probably be liable; however, I believe the likelihood to be slim to none that amex would go to that level of detail.

I was in Tokyo once and tried to purchase a pair of very expensive sneakers with my Amex.

It got declined initially, and literally 30 seconds later, I got a call from Amex.

They wanted to make sure that I was actually in Tokyo, trying to swipe my Centurion card. I said I was.

Purchase accepted.

JUST KIDDING!

I have never been declined a purchase.

Of course.

Why would Visa feel the need to decline your small-timer purchases?
