RE: AMAZON.GONE Tis the Season: FAX TO THE

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don't think you can assume that, just because ecommerce websites were
visited by the person that purloined the card info, that the info was stolen
from a website. It doesn't necessarily follow.

"Identity theft" is rampant these days, even for folks who don't even USE
ecommerce. Identity thieves--the next step up from credit thieves--get their
information from a variety of sources, including the garbage.

I hope this guy gets it all straightened out. In the meantime, I have been
using e-commerce sites for a couple of years now, and with some few
exceptions I'm very pleased.
