"Never, ever use a debit card."
Great advice that a lot of people don't take.
@mookie But debit cards through an FDIC insured bank have the same protections as credit cards. He should be advocating for cash. Credit cards also have more tracking and data mining involved than debit cards.
@mookie based on observations in the real world, IMO access to easy credit is a greater threat to most folks that debit card fraud? I'm suspicious of this advice.
Perhaps it's more applicable with the assumed USA environment - "everyone should X because federal law!" etc. I'm still mistrustful of the conclusion tho.
