  • Does someone have your credit card number?

    This site could be of interest if you are concerned that someone could have gotten your credit/debit card number. https://cardtest.cardcops.com

    How do you verify if that site is legit? These days I suspect everything and everyone. I'm becoming cynical in my old age Ed but with the level of believable scams out there it's for good reason. I admit it does look interesting and it would be a good service for online buyers.

      I too have become very paranoid of late - to the level I bought a shreader to mash up my reciepts or anything with my name and address on it.

      Probably an interesting site - but do you have to enter your details into it. If so how do you know they are only going to use it to check that other companies have not got them?

        I can understand the paranoia bit. I have a hard time trusting my own government, let alone an internet site. I found this site through the October issue of Smart Computing. If you happen to have it, it can be found on page 51. It says, in part, "CardCops reportedly uses 128 bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption while your number is being transmitted for checking, and stolen numbers in the database are also encrypted (it stores only stolen numbers)".

          It's always good to have an endorsement from a reliable source.

            Cookies anyone?
            by Ed_L
            I decided to get rid of all the cookies I didn't want, and I found there were well over 400 on my hard drive since last January. I decided to make my options for privacy a little higher. Then I found out that when I visited sites, there were all kinds of places wanting to place cookies on my machine....

            Credit/Debit card fraud
            by Ed_L
            There was some talk recently about security problems with internet explorer. I'm not sure if that was the problem or not, but someone got my wife's debit card number. There was a charge of $36.19 that we didn't use the card for. A trip to the bank, and a call by customer service found that it was charged...
