    i just got a call from discover. they asked me if was trying to make a 6,000 dollar purchase for some "wrestling thing"! i was like - NO! they also said whoever was trying to do it, was trying to do it online.

    i still have my card in my posession, so i know some1 didn't steal it - wtf? some1 got my cc number? i've heard of this happening to others, but i've always tried to stay safe with purchases online.

    now my card had 2 get cancelled and they're sending me a new 1.

    these days it so easy to steal identities. by a simple birth date and first or last name is enough to get every electronic data recorded. I feel for u, 8-9 years ago, i was a victim of 2 cards for $35K. come to find out a year later it was a 12 yo kid from a middle class family in DC using radio shack home made tool to steal from ATMs.

    ok i'll be serious.
    It's hard to be ultra-careful about stuff like that, but here are two tips. First, don't allow userdata persistance for anything. Next, when accessing bank accounts or using credit card numbers, use anonymous socks5 proxies? sorry i can't give better tips i'm just trying to be friendly

    not one cent. stop using cc online is a drop in the ocean to the full answer. no one will ever be 100% proof of identity theft and/or privacy, yet u can get close. DO ur own research and try to make ur own judgement,. there are many tips to go about this, yet that would take hours and don't have time now cos i gotta pick up the Le Mans car i bought today for $6000

    A lot of CC companies enable you to use "unique" numbers for buying on the internet.

    Some also require passwords for purchases online.

    Though if what nikita said is accurate, I don't know if that's a solution.

    I don't allow many sites to know my birthdate though.
