Does anyone ever check a credit card signature? Can you leave a negative tip?

That was hilarious. I work at A&B Sound, and we are supposed to check the back of the credit card and match it with the signature. So our store at least does it :)

That was pretty sobering. I was amused, afraid and entertained all at the same time. This guy has a lot of really good points, I`ve signed Richard Nixon`s and Adolph Hitler`s names before and nothing came of it. That`s a great website.

See, the problem here is that it`s the store that just keeps the receipts in a bin somewhere. They only actually pull out your receipt with signature if you make a complaint about something on your bill. So I would say, the next logical step would be to make a bunch of purchases with a fake signature, then tell the credit card company your card was stolen, and see if they take those purchases off your bill, because obviuosly, if the signature isn`t yours... the purchases weren`t either.

I work in a Chinese restraunt. I always check the place where you sign on the back of the card becuase a lot of people put "PLEASE SEE ID" on the back. I get a lot better tips if I ask to see those peoples ID`s.

But since it is a Chinese restraunt a lot of Oriental people eat there and they sign their signatures in other languages. So they could totally get away with putting hieroglyphics or whatever they wanted.

I don`t know if it`s the same guy but I`ve seen a very similar site before that had pretty much the exact same stuff... but going for 3 HDTVs that takes balls.
