The gift card you are purchasing for someone this holiday season may not have any money on it when the person goes to use it.   Senator Chuck Schumer says thieves can steal activation numbers on the back of gift cards while it's on a store shelf and then use the code number online after the store sells it to a customer. Schumer is urging companies to block the codes or remove the cards from display counters.
