Wal-Mart Informative - WalMart's use of stolen credit cards
MISHAWAKA, INDIANA -- About 18 months ago my wallet was stolen and within about 10 minutes the thieves were using my credit and debit cards at WalMart. Two men were using a woman's credit card, and they bought a plasma TV, video game player, and other cool stuff. Never once did WalMart ask for ID from them, even when my debit card reached its limit and the balance was put on the credit card. They even helped carry the stuff out to the car for them. I was told that it is WalMart's policy not to ask for ID even when they think there might be a problem. Evidently they don't care as long as they get their money. This took months to sort out and get resolved, but they were not worried about it.
