And you thought signing your credit card meant something i

I'm subscribed to Zug's newsletter. I loved the credit card prank. The penis enlargement pill test was the best though.

An old boss of mine told me to always sigh for ups packages with a bogus name, he always used Carey Grant, That way if there is a problem you can call the company you ordered it from and say you never received it.


Because all UPS has for proof is a bogus name.

I saw this on my local news over a year ago, with the Mickey Mouse signature in some store in Manhattan. They also got away with it, so it's not really news.

One time a guy came through our drive thru (I work at a subshop) and paid with a credit card that had the name of Homer Simpson on it. The guy was asian, so I imagined that it wasn't really his name. Never did find out how that happened.

Mine has *CHECK PHOTO ID* written in big red sharpie ink on it. You'd be surprised how many check my ID.

(it's not signed and not one person has refused it)

Mine says *ASK FOR ID* in red sharpie.

About 90% of the time they do.

While I was half-way done reading the second part of the prank, I thought to myself "he should try it out at Best Buy" because anytime I buy something there (at the Best Buy in Reno, NV), even if it's something as small as a CD, they scrutinize my signatures to see if they match up. lol To my surprise he did...but he didnt go through with the transaction. Too bad :(

Also, I've once been asked to sign my credit card at the counter because I'd left the space previously unsigned. I did, they accepted it, just like the guy doing the prank.

Edit: after spending 2 years working at a sub sandwich shop where I'd have to build sandwiches according to the customers specifications, I can easily relate to employees who dont give a crap about what signatures look like. I know I sure didnt. Most of the time my thoughts were more along the line of "omg, just take your food and leave. and DONT track mud across the floor I just mopped!"

Hmmm, mine says ASK FOR SUPEREGO. They never do. Must be Jungians.

Terrible psychology joke. Sorry, won't happen again...today.
