A 53-year-old foreign journalist who left his Montgomery County home after what a family friend said was a dispute with his wife early Saturday has been reported missing. Joachim Rogge, who had lived in Bethesda for 14 years while working as a correspondent for a chain of German newspapers, left the house "in a huff," said Kim Barrington, who spoke Thursday night on behalf of Rogge's French-born wife, Valerie. The Rogges have two children, ages 6 and 8. Barrington said Valerie Rogge has been in touch with Montgomery County police since learning that her husband's credit card was used to make an ATM withdrawal of $40 at a bank in Edgewood about 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- As any accountant knows, where there's a credit, there must be a debit.But while most people know the power of a credit card, they are less familiar with the card's inseparable twin -- the debit card.Debit cards, which work like checks, have been around for years. They have just recently begun to gain attention, however, as the nation's largest card issuers, Visa and MasterCard, have begun to align themselves with automated teller machine networks.Use of old-style debit cards grew little in the past decade.

Privacy experts, banks and others are warning consumers about another threat to their personal financial information: electronic "skimming" devices that record credit-card and debit-card numbers at ATMs, gas pumps or vending machines. Using tiny technology disguised as part of the machine, the thieves then press new cards with customers' numbers and run amok, to the dismay of cardholders such as Kristin R. Kyriakos, 29, of South Baltimore, who returned from vacation Monday to find numerous bank overdraft notices in her mailbox.

Booking Officer Ray Bryant said he was only joking last April when he told the quiet woman who wanted to surrender to him, "It's not like you're an ax murderer."But then "she said she had killed somebody," he told a Baltimore County jury yesterday. It was a first in his 24 years as a policeman.The woman was Dionne C. Brooks -- now on trial charged with murder in the beating death of 52-year-old Margaret Mae "Peggy" Kobik at the victim's apartment in Woodlawn last April 16. Mrs. Kobik had taken in the homeless Ms. Brooks after Mrs. Kobik's son befriended Ms. Brooks in a drug-rehabilitation program.

Some people rarely use their debit cards for purchases in stores or elsewhere. If that's the case for you, one way to avoid ever being charged Bank of America's debit card fee is to switch to a plain vanilla ATM-only card. It's a good option for folks who only use their debit to withdraw money from the ATM. And it provides another benefit: if that card is stolen the thief would need to know your PIN to get access to your cash --- they couldn't use it in a store, either. A Bank of America spokeswoman told me this morning that customers who want an ATM only card should call customer service or stop into a banking center.

Question: : While traveling in Peru for several months, I have been using my ATM card. No fees were ever disclosed. I have since learned that I have been charged an international transaction fee plus a $5 fee for each transaction. The combined fees have added up to hundreds of dollars. Trying to get a refund has been fruitless. Shouldn't banks make customers aware of these fees? Answer: : They do. Why, it took me only about 30 minutes of hunting on the bank's Web site to find the answer.

A homeless man was convicted yesterday of a brutal July 2005 rape in Severna Park, in which he broke into a woman's home, then bound, blindfolded and beat her before repeatedly assaulting her. Rodrick Lee Wren, 37, was sentenced to life in prison with all but 50 years suspended after entering an Alford plea to a charge of first-degree rape. The plea means he did not admit guilt but acknowledged that authorities had enough evidence to convict him. Wearing a dark-green jumpsuit and shackles, Wren told the court he was sorry the attack happened but that he was guilty only of withdrawing money with the woman's ATM card, taken from her purse after the attack.

Yao Qiang Deng barely glanced at the two defendants, the men twice his size responsible for his months of nightmares. Instead, he focused on the Mandarin interpreter and spoke in his native language about the impact of a robbery prosecutors describe as one of the county's cruelest. "I have difficulties sleeping," the court interpreter translated for Deng. "I have lost wages." Eight months ago, Deng, a chef at the Yao Han Chinese restaurant on Liberty Road who was working to bring his family to the United States from China, was tortured in his bedroom above the restaurant and robbed of his wallet, automated teller machine card and watch.

WASHINGTON -- It's 4 a.m. when Barbara Ehrenreich wakes up in a cold sweat. A writer with 20 years experience, it's not a deadline that's shaken her out of peaceful slumber. "I'm thinking about the table whose order I screwed up so that one of the boys didn't get his kiddie meal until the rest of the family had moved on to their Key Lime pies," she writes in her latest book, Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America (Metropolitan Books, $23). This is not the kind of thing that most best-selling authors and social critics think about late at night.
