You're right; it doesn't surprise me though.

This guy should tell Mastercard about this. Press the issue to see why they allowed this to happen.

WOW........ what a screwed up mess. But if you get them on the phone you get 25 frigging security questions, just less than DNA testing to ask a question about a bill.

Although last time I went through something like that I offered to send them a stool sample; whether they wanted it or not.

I've always liked the game that people play involving sending their advertisments back to them in their paid postage envelope.

Drood,
I always do that, but sometimes, I like to send DISCOVER the Mastercard crap and Visa the Discover crap et al. sometimes, I'll stuff them as full of other junkmail as I can, hoping the envelope is overweight, and the company will get charged extra postage to get rid of the crap.

On a side note, I did (and am still doing) a little test ( Rainman) should love this) with one of my credit cards. I got it about 3 months ago and never signed it. I figured I would see how long it would take before:

A: Someone looked at the back and said something like, "hey, this isn't signed, you can't use this"

B. How long I could b.s. past that even if they did notice.

I have now used the card 23 times.

Three people have noticed and I have been able to b.s. my way otu of it with the goods AND not having to sign the card.

Twenty people have not even looked at the back and handed it right back to me.

hah, I guess I don't get enough cc crap to worry about getting 2 card offers in one day. I'd hold on to them to send them back to the opposite company, but only for a couple days...the trash laying around would drive me nuts.

None of my credit cards are signed. 1 out of 10 times people ask for ID, depending on the purchase.

most people at the register make 7 dollars an hour, they don't care if it is your money or not, end of story :)

It seems every fricken credit card compay has that little "great deal flap" hanging off the back of the envelope that you send your payment back in these days. I have just been leaving it on and not taking the time to rip it off before I send in my payments. The people that open it have to love that. ;) I figured I would pass on the pain in the ass factor on down the line.

I write "SEE ID" on the back of all my credit cards...have NEVER been checked that I can recall.

I don't even hand my credit card to the cashier often. Thanks to the prevalence of debit cards, many stores have that keypad where you swipe it yourself.

My brother does the same thing, he writes "ASK FOR ID" in giant black marker letters where the signature goes and they still never check.

On a slightly different note, you could almost make more collecting unemployment.

How screwed up is that?

This is why I use my office incinerator. That's probably too formal of a term, I really just burn stuff in my trash can at work.

I'm a panhandler. When you see a bunch of homeless guys huddling around a burning trash can, they're not doing it for warmth. They're just properly disposing of their credit card applications to avoid identity theft.

I deliver pizza, and have to make an imprint of the card. When I ask to see I.D. people get pissed off, even when I am only doing what they wrote on the back of the card.

I know that I am at their address, but if they write it, I ask. I have never had someone tell me thanks for asking.

I've never thanked anyone for asking for my id... but, when it happens I don't get pissed or anything.
