It is 2012. July 2012 to be exact, so basically a slippery slope to 2013 already. And yet people are still tweeting and posting and Instagraming and generally making public images of their debit cards. Like the front part with their name and card number and all that good stuff, for all the world to steal.
Thankfully, @NeedaDebitCard has came along to knock some sense into the oblivious. But it’s a lesson unsuspecting lifecasters will have to learn the hard way. The anonymous Twitter account retweets the images unblurred under the message, “Please quit posting pictures of your debit cards, people.”
Think of it as paternalistic performance art. Just remember, teens, he/she’s doing because he/she cares.
The account, which has 4,100 followers and counting, started this May and hasn’t seemed to have any trouble sourcing new examples of bad judgement. But where most of us see something to shake our head at, others take a more charitable view:
