Veriphone credit card terminal & Ticket Receipt Printer

If you're looking for a receipt printer, eBay has a large number of offerings, although it's probably advisable that you only purchase from a trusted vendor, or at least know what you're getting into. This is especially the case if you're purchasing one alongside a credit card terminal.

With credit card fraud and ATM card skimming happening at a frequent clip, it's reasonable for everyone to be aware of their responsibilities. These are pretty obvious by now...safeguard your PIN numbers, report lost or stolen cards immediately, etc. But, since the onus also falls on retailers, there are a lot of things they can do, as there are a lot of ways they can be target as well.

Unscrupulous employees of establishments that accept debit or credit card have been known to carry card skimmers, which can be dealt with on a human resources level (unless they happen to be in on it too). However, it becomes difficult to punish if it happens to involve compromised machines, such as if someone replaces a credit card reader with one programmed to send information back to another server.

If these things are sold on eBay, then it's an opportunity for thieves and criminals. Caveat emptor as always.

Life Insurance Quotes Free .com - Premium Domain Name

So if you run a business offering free insurance quotes, you too can have a premium domain name for 99 cents. It's interesting how the internet has changed over the years, as just about every possible domain name possible has been taken. Since all the major companies have bought up every possible iteration of their name including acronyms, they're been going after RELATED keywords in domain names. Now, you can type in just about any keyword for whatever respective industry or consumer product and you're guaranteed to come up with something. Or at least a link farm.
