contactless payment check card, what's that?
I have BBandT for my bank and I just got a new check card in the mail with the new Visa logo. It also had a new feature which I didn't ask for called "contactless payment". I'm a little scared about that. Apparently, it works by waiving or hold the card over the reader and eliminates swiping. Have we actually gotten so lazy that we don't even have to swipe our cards anymore? I'm worried that I'm going to walk by a transponder one day and pay for someone elses groceries or something. Also, if it's emitting a signal, can crooks also "read" my card and steal the info? Anyone else use these? Can I request one without this scary new unnecessary feature?
