    Yeah me too Willow... I tell them all the time.. in some what kinder terms than 'you are an idiot' unless of course their attitutde is just super, for not asking me to see my ID. I usually do this AFTER my purchase. To make a point. I could be anyone, using anyone's Amex, Discover, Visa, or MC, or worse a Debit with Visa Logo, imagine having you checking account dumped, and your mortgage payment or car payment not going through!

    Retail Management needs to train their people to ALWAYS check ID, and when they do, actually LOOK AT IT CAREFULLY!

    This mans family is cash out of pocket, for working hard to put clothes on the backs of their children for school. Nice.

    the store clerks should also be fired for NOT CHECKING IDS along with signature on these credit cards, non of my credit cards are signed so they have to ask to see my id and signature and when they dont , I bring it to their attention and their managers attention

    At least one theft was in Triangle Town Center Mall. Belk's in particular.

    They say she took ID from "work", where is "work"?

    Sorry to hear of your misfortune. While this woman should be charged to the fullest extent of the law, I think Lowe's Food and Lowes HI should face some sort of fine as well since they obviously failed to actually look at this woman and had your wife's ID in their hands. Its not like she just swiped a credit card there. That is ridiculous! Hope your children are feeling safer with the lock changes.

    She is in hiding and when caught, will not be smiling.

    It's much easier these days for your credit card to be swiped without showing ID, with so many self service checkouts in use.
    It hasn't always been that way. I use self checkouts at the grocery chains.

    When caught, she should be given 15 years in prison.

    My purse was stolen and someone went crazy writing checks. I was at one branch of the bank the next morning closing the account while she was cashing a check at the branch downtown! It took me years to straighten it out. She had cashed many of them and the businesses came after me! She used my ID every time!

    I was shocked that Lowes Foods and Lowes. In both cases she used my wife's Drivers license as ID (they wrote the License number on the check, as the number is not printed on the check by default). And my wife does not look like this woman.
