Don’t use a debit card

Many people like using a debit card due to convenience or as a budgeting tool, but debit cards lack the same consumer protections that credit cards do.  Should your account be compromised, you can be responsible for a greater share of the loss than if you had used a credit card.  Remember, when you give someone your debit card, you point them to a pot of money which may contain living expenses or even your life’s savings!
