    Nice link Ron
    There's some interesting replies there.
    Heh: you hanging out too much with Spy1 ??

    My local video shop wanted 3 different types of ID: license, credit card and rates notice with address. :rolleyes: :eek:
    A spotty youth then wanted to enter that data in their network :p

    Its prolly a myth that we have any privacy in the wired world. :cautious:
    CAn we really stem the tide: I say YES : at least try and hold the line.
    The writer might be better off focusing on that.

    I have recently been a victim of credit card fraud: luckily picked up by my card co. ; Visa as a matter of fact.
    The irony was I got a cold call from someone at Visa enquiring about "my" recent purchases and I told the caller to jump: card then locked. :blink:
    Heh: how to check bonafides of a caller from ISP, Telco, CreditCard or anyone else ??.

    A friend of mine works for Amex and he says that card fraud is massive: what we see in terms of data theft and card fraud in the media is a fraction of the true total.
    He claims that the amount of money the card companies make legitimately means that they
    (retailers and credit card agencies) care little beyond a "public" face of concern.
    Reality is there is limited means to stop theft by fraud
    cf: TJMaxx !!

    Nil carborundum bastardi. ;)
