Only challenged once. I have a card that I use on vacation. It had not
been used for months and we were in Virginia. We stopped for breakfast,
then got gas, then bought something for my grandson. All within about an
hour, a few hundred miles from home. At the last store, the cashier had to
call the CC company. They asked me a couple of security questions and I was
OK the rest of the trip.
Different card, but once they shut mine off. We were in the process of an
interstate move. I guess they were suspicious about my driving two cars. ;-)
It took a while to straighten out. I had it happen just recently on a
vacation, too. Apparently only one outstanding "hold" can be put on a card
and I'd run through the second tank of gas before the first hold was resolved.
PITA, I like all gas purchases on one card (5% cash back).

Many restaurants in my area are not set up for the cardholder to
enter a pin. The transaction goes through as a credit card. In that
case, they invariably look for the signature on the back of the card.
