  1. Obviously it is a major security and identity theft risk, extreme invasion of privacy, and a no-brainer to keep your ID to yourself. No reasonable adult would hand over their ID to some violating cashier on demand. The most important thing is making sure it never happens again, so if any violating merchant should ever pop-up in your community, make sure they are eliminated/brought back into line immediately - 1-800-VISA-911. CREDIT CARD SIGNATURE IS ALL THE ID NEEDED When you pay for merchandise with a Visa card, MasterCard, or American Express any store that accepts these cards should accept yours too, no questions asked. It's part of the deal that merchants agree to when they become participating members. They must check your signature and the card - electronically or by telephone - to be sure it's valid. Once the answer comes up yes, they can go ahead and charge. They can't ask you for any further identification - not a license plate number, Social Security number, proof of address, phone number or photo ID. Your personal ID isn't needed because Visa, MasterCard, and American Express all guarantee payment on cards that have been properly checked. If the issuer mistakenly authorizes a sale on a bad card, it should make good. MasterCard says that merchants receive instant settlement. The contract MasterCard merchants sign specifically prevents them from asking for personal ID. Unfortunately, not all merchants play by the rules. Some, apparently, haven't read them. WHAT YOU CAN DO MasterCard wants to hear about merchants who break their rules. Send the name and address and an account of what happened to MasterCard WorldWide 2000 Purchase St. Purchase, NY 10577 or call 1-800-300-3069. The merchant's bank will get a stiff letter, ordering it to investigate and bring the offending store into line - or pay a $2,000 fine. You may also report violations online: http://www.mastercard.com/us/personal/en/c...violations.html Visa enforces the same rules as MasterCard. "When we hear about a violation, we ask the bank that signed the merchant to get together with the merchant and see that the practice is stopped," Visa representative states. To report a merchant, send a letter to the bank that that issued your Visa card or call 1-800-VISA-911. American Express also prohibits merchants from asking for IDs. "All a merchant is supposed to do is take an imprint, make sure the signature matches and swipe the card through the terminal, to get authorization."
  2. ..Visa believes merchants SHOULD NOT ASK for ID as part of their regular card acceptance procedures. So if you are ever asked for ID, immediately call 1-800-VISA-911 to ensure the practice is stopped at once.

  3. A violating merchant who attempts to require ID or a minimum with MasterCard will do the same with Visa. Simply offer a Visa card instead to be sure. The most important thing is making sure it never happens again, so if any violating merchant should ever pop-up in your community, make sure they are eliminated/brought back into line immediately - 1-800-VISA-911.

  6. Be sure to notify Visa as well. Simply call 1-800-VISA-911, press zero twice, and ask to file an "incident report" regarding both violations. Crooked merchants shape-up quickly to avoid suspension. Make sure your community is 100% violation-free.
  7. NO MINIMUMS NO MAXIMUMS **NO SURCHARGES** NO ID …And if any store ever attempts to pull any of these stunts, immediately call 1-800-VISA-911. http://creditboards.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=265954
  8. Went to the same BK today. Used a CC. Was asked to sign the receipt. Looked at receipt out of curiosity. They no longer say "No Signature Required" and they include a signature line. Probably got tired of people pointing that out and holding up the line.
  9. Simply present the credit card you purchased the tickets with and you'll be fine.
  10. …which is why education is crucial. This ID nonsense should be a long-extinct, non-issue today much like separate entrances, separate drinking fountains, etc..
