It's all aimed at keeping you safe from hackers.
new liability rules go into effect October 1 that shifts who pays for fraudulent charges. Banks used to cover any bogus transactions, but now the entity with less protection will have to cover the costs.
For instance, if a chip-enabled card is used in a store that hasn't upgraded its payment system, the retailer is on the hook for any fake swipes.

Best reply. Thanks.
Your welcome. We do what we can to protect our doctor clients and our patient’s information as well. I am simply amazed at the number of people who either ask if they can or simply go ahead and email their credit card number, name, address and three digit security code to us. And this is often right after the person has received a new card because their previous one was just used fraudulently. Often wonder what they use for brains.
