Restaurants Finally Protect Credit Cards

Have you ever had your credit card number stolen in a restaurant?

It happened to us a few years ago. A terse call from the bank informed us the next day that $600 of software had been charged to our account by the culprits along with $300 of toys.

It happened to us a few years ago.  A terse call from the bank informed us the next day that $600 of software had been charged to our account by the culprits along with $300 of toys.

 

But  now, thanks to Ruby Tuesday, a Tennessee restaurant chain, we won’t have to worry anymore while  we watch our precious cards disappear with the waiter somewhere behind the kitchen walls.

 

Ruby Tuesday’s new system will encrypt all info and will leave no [tag-ice]credit card numbers[/tag-ice] with  any of its 900  restaurants.  The new system should be in place and fully functional by mid-April.

 

Hooters is also  currently testing a hand held device that allows you to pay at the table; kind of like they do in Europe.   

 

My question is what took them so long?

 

But it will be one less problem for real estate [tag-self]investors[/tag-self] who eat out a lot.
