    • Ask for identification with every credit card purchase. Examples of valid identification include a valid California driver’s license or California I.D. card.
    • Don’t accept credit cards without checking the “hot sheet” or telephoning for authorization when not using a computerized system.
    • Always destroy carbons, if used, from purchase invoices to prevent credit card numbers and names from falling into the wrong hands.
