Right out of his bank account? They say your money is safe with them.

Is U. S. Bank going to make good on this?

If they don't, we need a follow up article with more details!

My husband took a business trip to Iowa last week. In the course of that trip his Visa check card was compromised. The bank (actually, a credit union) caught it before he did and called to verify charges on the card before paying them. There were four charges that he didn't make. The bank refused payment and immediately shut down the card and reissued it. I personally make a practice of never using my card where 1. it leaves my sight (such as in restaurants where you pay the server), and 2. allowing a clerk to turn the card over and seeing the verification code. If they do so I immediately demand the card back and refuse to let them run it. The real truth is, I don't like my card leaving my hand. If they don't have the equipment to allow me to swipe my card and electronically run my own transfer, I either pay cash or don't shop there.
