In an article written by Kim Komando for USA Today, entitled "4 places you should not swipe your debit card" Komando writes:

"Restaurants, too, can be a source of trouble. Some unscrupulous servers bring handheld card skimmers to work to swipe your card info. Even low-tech thieves can just write down the card numbers.

"To make matters worse, many restaurants use older computer systems for processing cards. These are easy for hackers to install card-swipe software, as in the Target hack. The price paid can be quite high; Subway got hit in 2011 by Romanian hackers, who got away with $10 million from 150 restaurants.

"One of the lesser noted aspects about the coming end to Microsoft's XP operating system is that many restaurants and ATMs still use the XP infrastructure.

"Restaurants and gas stations make juicy targets: a steady steam of customers, some not from the area."

The ideological Long Beach revolutionary political ruling class have provided protection for decent race fans who enjoy the simple worker *("middle")* class pleasure of an occasional tobacco product. The city has done this by criminalizing Council controlled Long Beach restauranteurs who serve them. Council has offered no such protection to decent non-tobacco users of good-will and non-tobacco users of ill-will. Just to be on the safe side, race fans and others who do not use tobacco products should not use debit cards when dining in the "increasingly obese" anti-tobacco user city of Long Beach.
