Safer credit cards should be on the way

newsroom@islandpacket.comApril 18, 2014 

The credit card companies have finally started to fix their problems. You can get a security chip in your credit card (something that they should have offered five years ago.)

Just call your credit card company and ask them to send you a new card with a chip.

But the only store that I have found that has a credit card chip reader is Walmart. I'm sure the other stores will follow suit very soon.
