[pct-l] travelers checks - Debit Cards - Cautionary Note

I also checked on my debit card agreement. It is a Mastercard debit card
issued thru a credit union. It has the protection Mags described. It also
has a clause saying that if you are unable to inform them of a lost or
stolen card or PIN due to a long trip or extended hospital stay, for
example, that they can extend the time limit beyond the normal 60 days
notification time.

Thanks for making me check this out, Ron.
