    Here's a question for you. Just wondering if I should be concerned.

    Went to a strip club with some friends last weeked. Only the third time I have been to one in my life. This was one in another state that I had never been to before.

    My wife went to the bar to get a drink, she took my credit card with her and gave it to the bartender. The bartender gave her a drink and kept the card telling her that I needed to come up there and pick it up. I went to get it and she asked for my ID. I have her my license and she took it and said she would be right back. She came back, handed me my license and credit card, and a sheet of paper that she had made a copy of my license and credit card and she asked me to sign the piece of paper.

    It wasn't until the next day that I began to wonder why I had to do all of that and why they made a copy of it. With all of the identity theft there is I began to wonder if I had made a big mistake.

    What do you guys think. Why would they need to do all of that? Any ideas?

    Just cancelled it. I haven't seen any odd activity on the account. But I would rather be safe than sorry. I should thought twice about it the other night. At least I did not have to learn the hard way.

    yup i believe it was only the third time visiting a gentlemens club.bringing along a wife and using credit cards is not something that is common for strip club aficionados.its always cash and with the guys with the occasional bi girlfriends.

    It was probably the clubs policy in case you tried to say it wasn't you later to the credit card company. Having said that I think it was a good idea to change ur card #. I wouldn't use my card in a place that wanted all of that because if the ID theft issue nowadays. I can understand wanting to see your id with a signature on it. Or even two pieces. But the photocopying is extreme.

    I was a waitress in a strip club that required a photocopy of your driver's license and credit card to use a credit card. I have even known of a club that required a thumb print for large amounts. Strip clubs constantly have to deal with customers disputing legitimate credit card charges. Buyer's remorse can be intense when YOU DIDN'T GET TO BRING ANYTHING HOME. Most of the customers in strip clubs have problems with impulse control. Even the poster had regrets about signing the photocopy but did it anyway. The club was just protecting their bottom line and the bartender was just doing her job. Strip clubs are very similar to casinos. The rule is: PAY CASH and only take as much as you can spend. When you run out of cash, LEAVE.

    strip clubs do that to insure they get paid.alot of people are addicted to that shit and run up massive bills and then deny the charges.Also a strip club is a heaven for people that steal credit cards.So they are probably just protecting themselves as well as you.
