    It has always amazed me how they never check the signature









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I'll get a Visa gift card every now and again. They always ask to see my license but they don't really check since my name is not Simon Mall

    I've ordered a new pin number from the bank just in case I need to use it at an ATM. It'll seem strange signing again after using chip and pin for so long.

    It does seem strange Claire

    I had to sign in Asda the other day as their system was down. When she turned my card over I hadn't signed the back of the card luckily I had other forms of identification on me

    I checked my card this morning Wendy and not only have I not signed it but it's still got the sticker on the front asking me to activate it by ringing the following number. Can you tell I've not used it for a while!

    My bank have just sent me a new credit card out of the blue - with a chip on!

    And a note saying if you are going overseas you need to get a PIN.

    Great timing, guys, I have just over a week till we go and you tell me this!!!

    I will ring the bank shortly and hopefully it won't take long to get a PIN but this is a hassle I don't need! :mad:

    Not once did we need to enter our pin. It was all signatures.

    In my case Kaz it's the same pin I use at ATMs. It might be the same with your card.

    Yeah and if you think I can remember that!

    Oh well, I know cards are less used in Japan and if you think we'll be ok in US I will stop panicking!:p015:

    Will ask the bank about a PIN though.
