  • In the USA the bulk of the financial risk is born by the financial institution. In the event of a dispute if they cannot prove that you paid, you will win by default. And saying, "our records indicate" is not proof. That won't help your credit rating. But it does keep you from losing actual money. (And it gives financial companies incentives to do all sorts of odd things like keep videotapes of ATM withdrawals in case they get disputed...)

    From what I've read, this is the opposite of the UK. Which has lead to problems for consumers over there.

    Therefore the people who are at risk of fraud from this are not as unprotected as you might think.
