Credit Card Precautions

  • Ask for identification with every purchase.
  • An example of valid identification includes a valid California drivers license or a California Identification card.
  • Don't accept credit cards without checking the "hot sheet" or telephoning for authorization.
  • Always destroy carbons from purchase invoices so that credit card numbers and names do not fall into the wrong hands.
