Well, I am still standing...

Real Estate Sales Representative with Tara Colquitt, The Credit Woman, LLC

Life has a way of making you realize what is important. So, while I truly enjoy helping folks, I needed to take a step back and get my life in order. It's slowly coming along. Not perfect, but I am happy.

Nice to be back.

  • Would you give a thief direct access to your checking account? 
No? Unfortunately, you may be doing just that by regularly using your debit card. And I use mine all the time. Debit cards may look identical to credit cards, but there’s one key difference. With credit cards, users who spot fraudulent charges on their bill can simply decline the charges and not pay the bill. On the other hand, debit cards draw money directly from your checking account, rather than from an intermediary such as a credit card company.
Because of that, even clear-cut cases of fraud where victims are protected from liability by consumer protection laws can cause significant hardship
While debit card fraud is always a possibility, being careful where you use it can help keep your checking account balance out of the hands of criminals.
