So if you let someone use your car, does that mean they can use it again any time they feel like it? Or your house? Or lend them money? I don't think so. Give me another example where one-time authorization automatically expands to forever. I don't think that idea is at all customary in our society or legal system. This is the responsibility of the police because it's unauthorized fraudulent use of a credit card, which is a crime, and it's at least partly the responsibility of the credit card company and the merchants involved because at no point did they apply even the most elementary security precautions, precautions that used to be routine for all credit card transactions.
