Sometime ago I thought I would just sign my signature for debit card use at stores with an X. I have been doing this for months now. No one has ever complained. Oh well, we’re in Finland.
Today, I got a new Debit card as my last one was about to fall apart. Only the better card readers were able to take it.
So I peel a brand new Visa electron from this piece of paper that’s signed by some representive of my bank, Sampo.
But there is no way someone would sign something like this and staring at the signature from the bank… it must have be printed by a good printer. There is no impression on the paper from the back. The paper is quite thick, but the pen used looks like a fountain pen. Even with a soft fineliner I can just pick out an impression. How ironic if this is true. A forged signature from a bank.
Urgh, don’t get me started with PINs. I’ve started entering them in my mobile phone with a bit of modulo and plausible prefixes.
