Done. Steal the virtual number that I created specifically for a one-time use on Ticketmaster.Com all you want, it will do you no good.

And the privacy.com account is tied to a bank account that is perpetually empty, unless I preload it first.

Done and done.

My bank lets me create temporary credit card numbers with a set limit.

When buying something from a site I don't fully trust, I create a temp number and set the limit to the exact amount of my order.

The charge goes through, and the temp number is effectively dead (subsequent transactions get declined).

No kidding. There have been several times while purchasing concert tickets where I expected the line item description on the upcharge to just say "And fark you, because we can."
