Unless in cases of disability or working class people who are far to busy to constantly scrutinize their credit card charges you will just be stealing from them. Sometimes it will take months for victims of CC fraud to get their money back. In cases of people living paycheck to paycheck this could make them miss their rent payment or be unable to buy food.

So no it won't hurt most people but it will hurt the most vulnerable people substantially.

Seconding this; I know single mothers who have gone hungry because somebody stole their credit card and it took months of arguing with their bank to get it fixed and in that time it destroyed their credit score and just generally made them miserable.
