Debit cards can be used as if they were credit cards, with no pin numbers necessary. This is often recommended to avoid theft by skimmers which detect PIN numbers when entered.
The money is taken from the account associated with the card, not billed like a credit card.


How do you even use a debit card without PIN# ? Are you sure it was debit and not credit card number? It is also weird that he would just go get a drill after stealing the card, knowing he could be picked up so fast.

THANK YOU HOME DEPOT for putting cameras in faucets and tools and all other valuable stuff so we can catch these crooks.. No thanks to MTA for not valuing our lives as much as Home Depot does their tools and showerheads!

Craic Dealer

Honestly this guy does look familiar. He may have went to Pulse Fitness *shuttering in disgust*.

Oppressed Masser

Didn’t this guy march with SUDS in the St. Pat’s for All Parade in March?
