lol, I get ya drift! I have a smiley at the end of mine, and even the bank doesnt notice when I make it a sad face!

 

I pulled the manager up on this as theres a HUGE difference between a happy n sad face, n he got really irate at me!

 

In terms of the handheld signiture things, they're a waste of time. I bet if you sign "Joe Bloggs", the guy/gal wouldnt care!

 

Whats the whole point of signing anyway?

 

Jeez, in the old days, the postie KNEW where he was going and he even knew the people. These days, its just........ an industry.

 

So much for modernisation.

Well, as the signature is 'captured' it can be used by the courier company to prove you accepted the parcel, and for all we know retain the image file and process it next time they have an unsigned delivery, to 'prove' you actually accepted delivery.

 

Cynic, me? :)

couriers will be called upon in court for identification.

Court? AFAICR, the signature does not need corroboration, unless challenged. and in any case, cout action would be pretty remote!

the point is that you signed for something, the courier will vouch for that.

If its a refund I always accept the signature regardless if the card is signed... (I am putting money back on your card are you really going to say you didn't authorise that???). Though I do always point it out, I even do it if its being done by chip and pin and I can see the back of the cards with the machines we use at work.

I don't think it matters does it, you could sign Queen Lizzy 2 if you want and it would still me your signiture, its YOUR MARK just as an X is your mark, so anything penned by your hand is your signiture, or am I barking up the wrong pencil!!!!

Hmm not too sure. But I would say whatever you signed on your "Passport" or "Photo identity Card" is your recognised sig.
