You open up your credit card statement, look at it, and frown. As if the bill itself isn’t bad enough, inside the envelope is a bunch of blank checks with your name on them and a friendly letter from your bank inviting you to use the checks.

But if a thief finds the checks and uses them, are you liable for the costs? Does the credit card company have the right to charge you for the thief’s purchases in your name?
