Lend Out Your Credit Card?
Wed, 02-05-2014 - 8:17am

Have you ever lent your credit card to a relative or friend to make a purchase, or bought something using someone else's card?

Perhaps you've punched in someone else's card number on his or her behalf to facilitate an online order. Maybe you've signed your spouse's name on a credit receipt. Doing any of these things is in violation of the credit card agreement, which states that only the person whose name appears on a card can use that account.

Most times, these are harmless actions, but as some experts and card users will tell you, sometimes there are consequences.


What do you think?  Would you ever lend out your credit card?
