To Sign or Not to Sign?

You may have heard the recommendation to not sign the back of your credit cards and instead write “See ID.” While the intentions behind this were to protect ourselves from credit card fraud, the advice is apparently outdated. It’s becoming less common to hand over our cards. Instead, we swipe or insert our own card to make a payment. Most credit card fraud today is due to data hacking and is rarely the act of someone stealing and using your physical card. All of these updates eliminate the need for writing “See or Check ID” on the back of the card. Instead, follow these tips to avoid credit card fraud:

  • Check your credit card statement weekly
  • Set up text and email alerts for suspicious activity
  • Use a credit card which has zero liability for fraudulent purchases
  • Avoid giving your credit card number over the phone or to an unsecured website
  • Look out for credit card skimmers on ATMs and gas station pumps
  • Use an RFID blocking wallet
