    At the end of October I am traveling to Amsterdam to speak at a conference. In preparation for the trip I called the two companies that have issued me credit cards that I plan to use on the trip: American Express and Chase. While on the phone telling them that I was traveling abroad and didn’t want to get hung up with any fraud protection for transactions on my trip, it occurred to me that this might be an opportunity to get a jump on EMV, otherwise known as “chip and PIN”. What followed, in both cases, has proven to me that EMV is seriously at risk in the US. You can point fingers at retailers, you can talk all you want about ignorant consumers who don’t care because they’re not liable. And all I will say is that the problem is much deeper than that. And for that, I blame the banks. The card issuers. Here’s why.
