What risk is there in issuing debit cards? Other than the obvious fraud potential, but that usually doesn’t originate with the card holder.

to be honest, I'm not sure. They issued me one when I asked for it, but I had to ask, it wasn't normal. And often when I use it, I get a Whatsapp call from a nervous bank staff member checking that it was me that used it. Kind of cute really.

Yeah right. Where do you live? Here in Australia Visa / Mastercard debit cards are very common.

This is Cambodia I'm talking about.I don't live there any more, but I still use the bank account I set up when I did
