I had a new experience this morning that concerns me. I had a bill to pay so I wrote out my check and was going to mail it but was concerned it would arrive late. I went to the address I was told I could make a payment and was expecting to give the check to someone. I was told the payments were made on a kiosk machine and to put in needed info and follow the steps. The screen asked for information like my check's bank routing number, account number and amount of payment etc. I did not expect to be paying like this and did not have my eyeglasses on and needed help reading the instructions. see and hear all the info being inputed. When finished, they did not even want the check and I got a receipt for payment.
I was concerned about this and called the store. The rep who helped me told me the bank account numbers I put in turn into black circles so that others can't see them. It was done so quickly, I didn't realize it happened like this. So I guess I don't have to be concerned about fraud on my bank account afterall. I think I am still living in the 1950's. :)
