ABC advises consumers not to apply for department store cards during holiday shopping season, too easy for identity thieves

ABC World News Tonight, on Wednesday November 27, 2013, gave a brief report on particular dangers of identity theft on Black Friday.

The thrust of the advice was not to sign up for store-specific credit cards, which are often pushed in order to obtain even lower prices, during the holidays.  Use regular credit cards if you have them.  I wrote about a misadventure with Macy’s here Jan. 23, 2013.  
There's a story on my main blog today about an unusual debt collection practice involving a TOS agreement that imposes a "fee" if someone writes a negative review about the vendor.
