I know that technology has come a long way - but panhandlers accepting credit cards just doesn't seem right!

I just heard about this happening in Michigan and I had to wonder when it will happen here in Idaho, or if it already is and I just don't know about it.

Don't get me wrong here. I'm all for giving money when you can to help another person but I just can't ever see myself giving money to a homeless person from my credit card. Also - does it seem weird that a panhandler has a smart phone capable of taking my money?
