Basically you have to think like a criminal. Why would you use a number you stole right away? Especially if you got it from a place you worked in.

Credit card frauds are so common and happens to everyone at least once. Just make sure you use a CREDIT CARD and not a visa/master debit card. Dealing with debit card frauds are much harder. The credit card company usually covers frauds like that. Keep a card that has very low limit for online purchases only.

One more thing, credit cards nowadays have RFID in them. If you are paranoid about them, you should make an aluminum shield for your wallet so that people cant sniff out your card info.

I refuse to use my credit or debit cards for online purchases. I have one of those pre-paid visas that I got at wal-mart, when I want to buy something online I just load as much as I need for the purchase on to that card. That way nothing is connected to my bank or credit accounts, there are some small fee's but worth it for not having my info floating around the net.
