I haven’t been checked and I was there two days ago buying stamps - but I have small town PO and they know me on first name basis.

My local USPS office has started a new practice and I wanting to see if this is now a nation wide practice.
My local USPS will not accept a credit card unless it is signed on the back.
Is this now the practice at your local USPS ??
I have always written "Check ID" in the white box on back to deter unauthorized use, but they don't care. AND, if there is a signature on back, they don't bother to check ID's if that is requested on the card.
I borrowed the workers felt-tip pen and signed my in the smallest unreadable pen that I could and he said "good enough, I'll accept that".... honest, if you looked at you can't tell what it is.
The next time I went to the USPS to ship something, I wrote a check. I was very meticulous at filling in the register book and writing the check. And when the postal worker started tapping her fingers on the counter, I became even more meticulous.
When you use a credit card over the phone, or internet, no one checks for signatures - they CAN'T. I went to my congressman's local office to register a complaint and his assistant was surprised to hear about the new practice, and said he also has "Check ID" written on the back of his cards.
