    Um...no.

    Your friend might be thinking of check/debit cards, which is basically a credit card without the credit part, since it's tied to your checking account like an ATM card. You'll need to get a whole new card, since you need your name, 16 digit number and CVS numbers as well. Talk to your bank about getting a debit card.

    Does your "ATM" card have a credit company logo on it or as whypick1 said have a 16 digit number? Seeing as you are in MO is this card from UMB or a smaller bank. I ask only because I used to work for them. Actually worked for many banks in MO and KS.

    the card would also have to have one of maestro/visa-delta/switch etc on it, to function as a debit card surely.. (though this may be different outside europe)

    Chances are your bank is small. There is no reason for an ATM card to have to have anything embossed in it, its not worth anything online. Maybe he means a debit, which is embossed almost always. One nutty bud you have.
