Hey merchants! Stop asking people to write down their CVV for credit card payments...

I know you get a better exchange rate and all that, but the fact that you ask your customers to write this down on your form means that when it arrives at your location you are now "storing" it, and this is a NO NO.  It's intended to confirm card-not-present electronic transactions and the customer themselves should be typing this in.  You are putting yourself and your customers at risk by asking for this and storing it.
