? on debit card pin numbers
I felt a little funny the other day when the cashier at Best Buy ogled the PIN numbers I was entering for a debit card purchase. (Visa check card.)
I asked at the bank about changing my PIN, they said nobody could do anything with the PIN unless they also physically had the card to swipe through an ATM or at a cash register.
Can someone confirm this true? I'm not feeling quite sure about it, only from my experience at work. We use barcodes, and if they don't scan correctly we can enter the numbers manually. Is there any way, if someone had the card number and PIN, they could manually enter the numbers at a cash register to make purchases?
