Retailers in Utah and across the various states often look at my credit or debit cards with a wary eye, because they're Canadian bank cards and have chips in them. I feel sad, and sometimes exasperated, that I have to explain that it's a security feature and I wish it were available here. Sometimes, I'll ask a clerk if the signature I use to validate a card transaction is mine or that of my high school principal, who's signature I also used to be good at. Of course the clerk doesn't get the reference but my point is valid; there's no security in that process. The other thing I haven't gotten to accept and won't is how comfortable people still are here writing and accepting cheques; it's unbelievable that such a fraud prone methodology is still in wide use.
