How Easy Is Credit Card Fraud?

CreditcardfraudNotice how retailers rarely check your signature against your driver's license when you sign credit card receipts?  Internet prankster John Hargrave set out to determine just how easy it is to commit credit card fraud.  He got away with signing his name Kris P. Creme on a Dunkin Donuts receipt (left), signed another "transaction not authorized," and even drew parts of his body on the signature line.  The results of his credit card adventures can be found here and here.
