[Andrew Kimery] "I'll just come out and say it. In this day and age, what's so horrible about your CC number getting stolen? I've had my CC number stolen 3 times in 4 years by CC skimmers (no cyber-theft involved) and each time the bank alerts me to the suspicious charges (usually via text), I confirm they are fraudulent (so I'm not on the hook for them), my CC is frozen and I get a new card the next day via FedEx. Fine, steal my CC number. No skin off my nose (other than having to re-do all my auto renewals).

What I'm more worried about is someone taking over my email account or getting their hands on things that will allow them to easily steal my identity. A massive, global corporation I used to work for had their HR servers hacked. Now *that's* a truck load of info that can royally screw up someone's life.

Mitch, I'm sure your bank has all your info sitting on a Internet attached server somewhere. ;)"

I've had the same issue but only with CapitalOne. I usually find out after the card doesn't work. I was traveling once, that was a pain. Sounds like you get a replacement a bit quicker than most of us.

Agreed, the identity thing is the real serious part.

The info will always be somewhere, which is why the best you can do is to eliminate having it anywhere that you can avoid. Minimizing risk is the best you can achieve... there are no guarantees. I still use cash because cash doesn't report everything you do and it keeps your Inbox and mailbox a bit less crowded. Soon this government will probably try to discourage that...
