    For your information 2:53pm there are some but not all stores in Cayman that do have Chip and Pin Terminals and clients that do have Chip and Pin Cards. Gather you facts straight before posting foolish comments.

    If Cayman had chip and PIN like the rest of the developed world, that couldn’t have happened.

      An unnamed bank have partially implemented these named devices

        Doesn’t help if the stores that implement it don’t update their systems and still require you to hand over your card so they can manually enter the number into their outdated 1980’s computer systems.

        Looking at you unnamed small family hardware store.

          The banks are responsible for updating their Card stations at all client locations. Also, it does not matter what type of sales system the businesses use, as charges that are swiped through the card machines go straight to the connected account. Input into the business sales systems are only for business records, has nothing to do with the card machines. It is better to be quiet and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. Idiot.

        That would be the owner of the small hardware store that won’t process the sale without manually inputting the card number to their system.

        • SwampCrab says:

          It is not the card numbers that are entered into sales systems, it is the transaction approval numbers.

      What do you mean “the rest of the developed world”? When did Cayman get an upgrade?

    Anonymous courier, anonymous victims, anonymous employer. All we know is he is from West Bay. Hmmm!

      The article said he lives in West Bay – believe me half of the people living in West Bay are “from” some place else.

      I assume the criminals come from West Bay unless stated otherwise.

        Came from West Bay, do not make anyone a Westbayer. West Bay District includes the Governors House all the way across to the North Sound including the gulf course continuing North from sea to sea. If someone fall off a bicycle by Kentucky Fried Chicken in George Town, the name West Bay is mentioned as West Bay road. Consider this, if something happens in George Town rarely is the name mentioned, normally it is so and so happened on Dump Road!!, just saying.

          However the disproportionately high string of convicted criminals that come from West Bay is a more significant issue than people falling off bicycles on West Bay Road.
