This is probably a bit of a dumb question, but . . .

Fellow cashiers:

I've noticed some debate over how to handle unsigned credit cards in a few communities, and I'm wondering if anyone can give me a straight answer . . .

Assuming you do ask for ID, what are you supposed to look for? The way my register works, I don't see the name until after the card has been processed, thus rendering it useless if the name on the ID doesn't match. All a photo ID proves is that the person, well . . . has a photo ID.

If the signature doesn't match the one on the card, what do I do? I've heard that it may be a joint account, thus one person could sign for the other. I did have a guy come up and sign, then I noticed on the slip there was a woman's name . . .

Thanks, I really hope I'm not asking a totally stupid question here . . .
