Tobin_Lam: serial_crusher: 2 words: bit. coin.

Then nobody will steal your useless money! Brilliant!

Except for all the people and merchants whose bit coins got stolen.

How can people avoid getting their credit card number stolen? It isn't easy, he said. He suggests making sure that online purchases are done on a secure site (the web address will start with "https"), and watching cards when making purchases at a business.

Or you can do what I do and use a Citibank Mastercard that lets you generate unique virtual account numbers online. They expire in a month and can only be used for one purchase. If someone attempts to use a number that you've already used, you'll know exactly which merchant let it leak.

The exact same thing happened to us a couple of months ago. I figured the criminals were stupid or it was an aggressive sales technique on the part of the merchants.
