Does anyone actually use those blank checks from the credit card company?

I hate getting those. If I need a check I'll use my own, but I don't like the thought that if my mail got stolen, someone could use those checks!

  • i hate it when they send those out too. why not just put a big sign on my mail box that says "steal my identity"..... that would be the same imo. i called them and told them to stop doing it. they did, but it took 3 months from when i called.

  • When I was working as a bank teller, I cashed/deposited a ton of those for customers. I just wanted to ask them what was so important that they needed to pay those crazy fees for them. I personally won't use them!

  • Yes, I used them when I was about 20 yr old. It was a bad idea.
