The Director of the Bucks County Department of Consumer Affairs, Mike Bannon says, it’s safer to use the credit portion of your debit card.
“When you use your credit card and there is a dispute with the store where you made the purchase, you can file a compliant with the credit card company and they will help. Debit transactions can be dangerous because if someone gets your information they can clean out your account. Credit card companies will protect against theft.”
Bannon adds, the credit card portion also protects you from being ripped off if someone steals your information. Bannon was a guest on the AM Edition Tuesday morning.
