Law Takes Effect To Protect Credit Card Numbers

A new law took effect on July 1, 2005, which prohibits North Carolina businesses that use electronic credit-card machines from printing a customer's entire credit card number on a receipt. The law, approved by the General Assembly in 2003, requires that any new credit card machines installed after February 2004 print only the last five digits of the credit card number. All businesses had to be in compliance with the stricter standards last week or face fines of $500 per violation up to $2,000 per year. The measure applies to the receipts given to customers. Merchants are still allowed to keep receipts with complete card numbers and expiration date for their records. The bill is aimed at reducing credit card fraud, which costs companies about $2 billion a year, according to Bankrate.com, an online personal finance and research service.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
