So in reality you are the least knowledgeable when it comes to credit cards or how the world works.

You are making way too many assumptions, as always.
If you've ever seen a real credit card, you'd know you can't just easily print them. If you had any idea what you were talking about, you'd know that when you use a card in store then you'd have to scan the card. So even if you were to fake a card, it wouldn't scan. Now, I'll assume the thieves have one of the machines to print data onto the cards. Now, they'd have to forge all the data onto the card, which you'd need a hell of a lot more than the visible data embossed on the side.
In the off chance you make it far enough and the card doesn't work, and you attempt to buy with the number, the cashier would have to punch in the numbers individually. At this point, in all the events I've ever had to do this, ID was requested at that moment.Edited by Zinxe - 5/2/11 at 4:12pm
