Response to Re: Cashless society
"In theory, a credit card can't be used without verifying the owner's identity with a signature - that is a form of biometric identification."
Every day people buy things via the phone and internet using credit cards without any signature. All you need is the name and CC number.
And in stores when I do sign my name the clerk rarely gives it more than a glance. I doubt many forgers would be spotted at all.
