    As bad as identity theft is, how is it’s businesses fault? Who has done more to stop it, banks have programs, life lock. Not denying it can take years to fix but that is why you need to check all the credit reporting companies all the time.

    You are SO in the pocket of Corporate America!
    .
    That is the line that Corp America WANTS you to believe, that it is not their obligation to carry through on the promise they made to you that their plastic money solution was going to be better and safer than the paper version they replaced (at a hidden 3% sales tax on everything you buy with it! But hey, it’s only a bad tax when it goes to the government, right?).
    .
    They made the deal, we took the deal, now they want to beg off their side of the bargain, and you are on their side.
    .
    Smart!

    Reason is right; that 3% should buy the consumer protection and not just convenience.

    Ok who said that and when, so you take no responsibility about your own credit rating. Then get ready to live in an apartment and pay the landlord which sucks.

    Credit Card theft started on day one and became worse in the late 80s with computers. So you hold business responsible for a problem we always knew about, became worse when things changed for crimes committed by others.

    Zing!

    As for Townson take the man’s advice, look what Obamacare did for you!

    When ever the left take an issue it gets worse, the poor more of them, Healthcare now is a wreak, foreign policy in the dumps.

    Guess that makes you in the other pocket.

    “Ok who said that and when…”
    .
    “American Express Travelers checks, Don’t leave home without them!” (granted, it’s travelers checks, when was the last time you saw them?)
    .
    “Visa, it’s everywhere you want to be!”
    .
    Implication: it is safer for you to use your Visa card.
    .
    Credit rating: Credit rating has nothing to do with identity theft. You are conflating two different issues (like a good corporate toady should, because that’s how they shift the blame on to you).
    .
    It is very possible for the credit card companies to protect you from theft. They could include Life Alert® as part of your service package. But they don’t. Because they choose not to. They would rather you do that on your own.
    .
    Did you ever see the film Midnight Run? In it there is a scene where the criminal (played by Charles Grodin) is watching the bounty hunter (played by Robert Di Niro) eat fried chicken. He asks him if he is aware of the dangers of fried foods. Jack says he is. The Duke says “So you’re aware of your bad behavior and yet you continue to do it?”
    .
    “We” weren’t the only ones who knew about the problems. The issuers knew too. And yet they continued to issue unsafe instruments. Assuring us that we’d be safe. We’re not.
    .
    Yeah, I hold them to their promise that they would keep us safe.
    .
    I don’t know who Townson is or what advice you are referring to.
    .
    Obamacare helped me. Helped you too. I don’t prefer it, I would have preferred Single Payer, but, for you to toss it out there like it is supposed to mean something is pretty pathetic.
    .
    You keep working that line during the mid terms, and then try it some more during the next Prex Elex, see where it gets you.
    .
    As to the rest. I don’t know what you’re talking about; and that makes two of us!
