I don't know if anyone has seen this or heard about this, but those who shop often at Michaels should keep an eye on their bank statement. I discoverd $1,400 missing from my checking account on Mothers Day. I use my debit card practically weekly at Michaels. My sister told me about this the day after I told her about the missing money.

Thanks cakegirl. I did get the money back 2 days after filing a claim at the bank thankfully. Just want to make sure others know to check over their statements.

Hmm, makes me wonder if Michaels knew about this before. Our Michael's suddenly got rid of all of their debit machines almost a year ago, they've been running it as cretid through their terminal since then. When I asked them what happened, they said they didn't like them and when asked if they are going to replace them with something else, they said no.
Was interesting to see this, P
