Are you telling me that corporate retailers are not doing thorough background checks on their employees or that the system is flawed? My gosh. That must also means that their psych evals to new hirees are flawed, how could that be. Well anyway, I'm glad our public dollars are serving the interests of the public controlled banks. Time to get rid of all credit card's america, it appears that the US is guilty of bad faith
