Help me minimize my card exposure

A couple of weeks back, somebody cloned my debit card (I'm fairly certain it was skimmed, as the uses were all local) and used it to rack up some fraudulent transactions. Everything's sorted now, but I'd like to figure out how to establish a limited card I could use in cases that are higher risk while minimizing exposure should the card be compromised. [more inside]

Stolen debit card used at ATM... how?

I lost my debit card in a crowded bar/concert venue and someone used it to withdraw cash from an ATM twice. How were they able to do this? I can't think of a scenario where they could have figured out my PIN. [more inside]

Walmart running Debit Card as debit even if I hit Credit button?

With recent purchases at Walmart I've noticed something odd. Despite hitting the "credit" button on the keypad when swiping my Visa Debit Card, my receipts list "EFT Debit" instead of listing it as a Visa transaction. What has me concerned is that during these transactions, I don't get asked for my Debit PIN. [more inside]

Why does my debit card keep getting cloned?

Twice, about year apart, I have had my debit card cloned, copied or otherwise made use of without my permission. The first was around a year ago. When I checked my account and found point-of-sale transactions for about $120 at two different locations, about 400 miles and two days apart. In states that I've never been to. Called my bank, card turned off, money reimbursed, etc etc. Then yesterday... [more inside]

Can I lend someone my debit card?

Can I lend my girlfriend my debit card? She is visiting from overseas and might want to go buy groceries or stuff while I'm at work. We don't have a bunch of cash to hand nor any great desire to visit an ATM and withdraw some. Can I just lend her my debit card and tell her the PIN? It has my name on it, and it's pretty obviously not her name...

My debit card was lost/stolen and fraudulently misused.
