Check Las Vegas. Looks like Chumlee on Pawn Stars.

There just might, maybe, be less credit card theft if the people behind the counter would check the back of the card to see if the signature is similar or has a note requesting an ID. I always thank the ones that take the time to do that. I recently read that those cards that use a chip won’t be asking for a signature either in the future.

These days we just swipe our card and go. I can’t remember the last time a clerk even had possession of my debit or credit card. Even when clerks had my card, I don’t remember anyone checking the signature. I’ve been asked for ID maybe 2-3 times, and it was when I was very young. I don’t think the clerks care.

I agree there would be less crime if everyone was more cautious.

John Belushi was my first thought too.
