People make such an effort to break the law, why not get a paying job?


So if you used those self checkout machines(like the ones pictured below), check you bank account for unauthorized activity.

That sucks---well so long as you dont see any unusual activity Im guessing your fine. I think at worst you'll have to replace your card.

I have actually had to replace 2 of my ATM cards this summer, one for each of my checking accounts due to fraud.

Luckily, I didn't lose any money, the banks resolved quickly and contacted me right away to see if the charges were mine. All in all the charges across all my accounts totaled $100 and they were refunded right away. (They were suspiciously on the east coast on the same day I spent money here....)

Maybe you can find the Way to Safe-ty.

It would give new meaning to Whole Paycheck though.
