Don't think checks are any safer. Over the President Day weekend notified our Election Company notified us their site was compromised also. Told to check with our bank. This never happened yrs. ago Went shopping with cash. Chance of being held up. Then came the banks with the Credit cards Great. Then came this wonderful P.C. Troubles have started with the Cards Then the banks issued Debit Cards more trouble. All this because of this PC. Where would we be without it Sometimes I think we were better off without it.
