    “retail store” meaning a target maybe.If retailers would ask for id when accepting a credit card then this would be impossible.If I was a clerk these 3 would warrant that for sure.

      As long as a card is signed on the back than most places are not required to ask for an id
      I worked retail and as long as the card is signed than no we don’t have to ask for an id

      Nice… the troll comes out to play. Sorry to burst your bubble there but 1) I’m not a thief and 2) I’m much better looking than either one of those dudes.

    People themselves can take one of the equations out of this to help prevent it. There is motive and opportunity. Deny the opportunity. Either stop carrying around something you have to leave in a cart (just take out what you need right then, your ID and credit card and stick them in your pocket or buy an ID holder to carry on your neck), or if you choose to take your purse in, good grief, keep an eye on it. Make it a habit, like locking your house and car when you leave.
