You can use a debit card as a credit card without using the pin.

When she gets caught she will probably sue the police department for calling her “obese”.

How did she use a debit card? Was the PIN attached? I won’t mind showing an ID with the debit card if that is what is necessary.

Laura, debit cards can be used as credit cards in many stores, if one selects that option.
