A no brainer or not? http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=news/state&id=7704795 Apparently a small fraction of the money put onto these cards was spent outside the state, normally this would not raise much suspicion however sixteen thousand was withdrawn aboard cruise ships, $1.5 in Florida; these are California cards; and nearly 400 thousand in Hawaii. Then top off the millions withdrawn in suspicious locations California pays ATM fees when used at machines that charge! I guess my first question would be, why in the hell would you let them withdraw cash with the cards? Why not restrict them to point of sale purchases, no cash allowed. Or perhaps only a small amount which requires some type of form to be filled out justifying the expense?
