Is that by swipe to simulate a magnetic strip on a credit card, or tap and pay?
The last time we used a non-Target credit card at Target, we got hit with a bogus $750 online charge.

Problem is, the CC companies and retailers in the US are resisting chips in cards and the machines that use them. Just got a new CC today and no chip. This is not cutting edge tech. It's used all over the planet. You and others being nailed by fraud is the fault of Target and the CC companies that aren't using this tech.

Only way to get them to put chips in cards, is not only have these companies to eat those charges, but to fine them per occurrence and to give each cardholder 10% of the fraudulent charge as a credit on that card, and as far as those who commit these crimes, minimal 5 to 10 year prison sentences.

This is pretty hilarious. Here in Canada, we have been using chip cards for at least 10 - 12 years, and now, all new debit / credit cards have tap capability up to a $100.00 purchase. It's standard here, all businesses / restaurants accept them, and it's quick and easy. I have personally been using a chip / tap card for at least 10 years and I have never had a fraudulent charge, and I don't personally know anybody that has had one, either.

Time to catch up.
