I don't send or collect cards. I log the contacts in my log book and that is all I need to remind me of the qso.
I guess if I were in to contesting or awards it would have to be different so I could show "Proof" I talked to X amount of stations.
I really don't understand having to show some kind of proof anyway. What would be the point of lying about it? It's not like there is any prize of monetary value awarded if you win.
I think if someone wanted to lie about it,they could just as easy make up some fake plaque or certificate saying they won something and hang it on their wall for all their "friends" to see. It would probably be much cheaper to have something fake made compared to the cost of making fake cards.

Honorable people agree with you.  Not all people are honorable.  I'd be willing to bet there are folks out there cheating right now to get DXCC or WAS or whatever award.  Just like there'll be people cheating this weekend when I go race with the SCCA, even though the only winnings are a small plaque you could easily buy at the corner trophy shop.  And people probably do that, too.  They're in the minority, but they're surely out there.
