I phoned my bank as i don't want to use visa or MasterCard and wanted an alternative due to their decision on wikileaks i was told by my uk bank.
Visa/MasterCard have a monopoly on pin and chip cards and other cards such as electron delta all come from the above.Cards are rented to these and
the banks form visa and MasterCard who own them even if they say EG Lloyd visa card?
On further inquiring it seems what they said was true
I need a debit card with chip and pin,im in the uk does anyone have an alternative i could change to?
I am not one for getting upset normally but the usa attack on wikileaks has got me mad as hell and i am determined that the amazons, pay pals etc
will not get a penny from me, at least.
