Somebody just the other day suggested writing on the back of a new credit card, in the signature area:  "ID requested" or "Check ID", instead of our signature.  Anyway, I thought it's a good idea for credit cards that we seldom use, but always carry with us.  Just in case.  However, I don't know how well it would work.   


Years ago, this was a suggested solution and the only problem was that it seemed like 99% of retailers wouldn't even care to ask for ID.  They would just ignore it.  Smiley Sad   Yeah, totally WRONG but unfortunately true.
