I know people (ahem) who`ve drawn penises when digitally signing for goods, then rung up to confirm who received it.

the signature is only important when filing a dispute. if you have a track record of just scribbling, its hard to dispute when the card is stolen and there is just scribble. on the flip, if you`re a scribbler and someone tries to use your card and actually attempts to sign your name...

and cashiers aren`t supposed to check the signature, their responsibility is to check the ID to make sure its your card when doing credit. debit is much harder to know the person`s pin, so not checking for debit transactions is more ok.

I sometimes draw tanks shooting air planes when I see they don`t have a monitor that shows the signature box.

"This ain`t actually true. It`s just that very few people actually set up digital signature verification."

I see it at nearly every store I shop at.

I always sign when I use a credit card--though I haven`t used my name in probably 3 years. I`ve used Fred, Harry, Chami, George, Edward, Alphonse...and quite a few more...

When I was working register I got complimented for actually bothering to check the signature. I also caught two people using credit cards that obviously weren`t theirs. ("It`s my girlfriend`s, OK? We have a joint checking account." "How do I know that`s true, sir?" "She`s across the street. Do you want me to go get her?!?" "Yes, please." "Uh... Her hip`s broken, you want me to force her to walk on that?" "Well, if you want to use that card, then yes, you`ll have to." The guy left and later came back to show me he had her driver`s license too, as though that proved something. I wanted to say, "Congratulations, sir, I see you`ve stolen her WHOLE wallet.")

That being said, the vast majority of people don`t even bother to sign their credit cards, even though unsigned CCs aren`t valid (check the back of your CC). Writing "See ID" isn`t valid either, and CC companies discourage it.

No sh*t, most people I know just scribble a random wavy line and then hit the "ok" button.
