What happens if you run a debit card as credit

Can you use credit card without PIN
Credit card PINs may be required if you want to take out cash advances at ATMs. Entering your PIN helps verify that you’re the card owner. And if you don’t have a credit card PIN when it’s required or can’t remember it, you can’t complete the cash advance.
