>>> "Happened to us a while ago, but not in aruba."
---- Also happened to my wife on a trip out west. The credit card company can tell when a card # is manually enterred and not swipped. I usually check our cards on line every few days. We called the credit card people on the phone and the charges were removed right over the phone. So the business where the # was manually enterred will get stuck for the $$$$. Never did hear back what the story was or who did what.
>>> " i never understood why people use them"
----- Ditto. Only use mine to get cash at my local bank.
