Credit card companies actually state that when a seller is accepting a credit card for payment the card must be signed with the actual signature. Anything else makes the card technically legally invalid.


Interesting. Back when I used to be a bartender, at all the "fine drinking establishments" I used to sling at, not once did an owner inform any of us that we needed to check signature at all.

Fast forward years later, and even now, every time I use my cards, it doesn't seem like the signature is anything but a formality to any store clerk.

My signature is utterly illegible. It consists of something that might, if you're charitable, be taken for first letter in my first name, and a line that has bumps in that match the ascending letters in my surname. This has been issue exactly three times in the last few years. Once getting a marriage license, where the clerk printed a new copy of the form and made me print my name, once signing a lease where I had to stomp and threaten to walk, and the last time at a gas station where I was buying a candy bar and a Gatorade.

I was on a bike ride, and I only had stuck a credit card in my pocket, forgetting my driver's license. I was about forty miles from home, and stopped for water, some food, and to pee at a rural gas station. Clerk wanted to see my license, even though my signatures matched. I pretty much walked out, and told him where I was going, and what route I was taking, in case he wanted to send a cop after me.

Thanks for the informative post! I didn't know about CODE 10.

LOL....next time you get hassled by a clerk, tell her to call a CODE 10. See if they even know what the hell you are talking about. I find most clerks don't know half the rules issued by the credit card company.

I used to write SEE ID. But I got sick and tired of getting I'd at fast food restaurants and not places like best buy. No signatures anymore.
