I live in Toronto, CANADA and have noticed that our credit card receipts show our credit card number and the expiry date and sometimes even our name on them.
When I have travelled in the US I have noticed that this information does not appear on the slips I receive from the merchants.
I feel that this is very dangerous for us all and because of that I always destroy my receipts from the merchants.
How is it that the American merchants do not show this imformation on the slips?
Also I have noticed in Toronto that merchants that accept direct deduction from my bank account with a Bank card (Interac) have recently started to say that people must make a minimum purchase to use such card.
I think this is against their contract with the bank and people should start reporting these merchants to the member bank.
I honestly think these establishments are just getting greedy.
Anyone have any thoughts on these two topics?
I think the reasons these things go on in Canada is because to many people put up with it, but not me I complain to the bank every time I notice it happening. Does everyone else?
Please feel free to email me.
I’m not conceited, I’m convinced!
The only stupid question is the one YOU do not ask !!
