Re: Carbon
Agreed, makes me wonder how PF Changs expects to process all credit cards with carbon imprints.  All of my cards are printed on and not raised.

I'm afraid this will lead to them writing down numbers on paper instead which is far less secure.

Re: Carbon
Card technology needs to be impoved dramatically. It will be a huge investment but the greater security and less chance of data loss will benefit all in the long run. How many more retailers getting hit will it take for everyone to get the hint that something must change?

Carbon
I would like to point out that more secure credit/debit cards do not have raised numbers. It is all printed directly on the card.  Cards that contain this feature do not leave traceable imprints on a person's receipts or card sleeve inside their wallet or purse. Simply sketching a pencil and paper over the imprinted object reveals it all. This is all accomplished with out the physical card.

It's more than the security of POS systems we need to be concerned about.


Looks like I'll be paying cash because carbon doesn't work on me.
