The banks in some countries, like Sweden, do not issue proper credit cards. What you get instead is a charge card with an account that has an overdraft facility. This sucks because usually the full amount has to be paid every month and if the card gets ripped off, the money goes away immediately and its entirely your problem to get it back, with a proper credit card one just dispute the fraudulent entry in the ledger.
