hey that's a very good idea!

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.
well it is a 500$ card just for online stuff

They tried to take money from me 29 different occasions today alone.

I had just purchased a NS SL-r for total of 480 so they only managed to get 20 bucks out of the account.

And the only things I've use the card for in the past month were a speeding ticket and this board so its a little suspicous.

I bought the board from the boardroomshop.com. Not sure if anyone has any previous experience with them but be careful.


Now this is not an accusation or anything as I don't believe it was the retailer, but no less it was a concern which my bank had found before too long, and I felt the need to tell other people to be careful when dealing online.

And is it honestly the ONLY thing you use it for besides the ticket? No liquor, beer, gas at all?
I did it from the comp.

and no i don't use it for anything else because the stripe is messed on it so it can't be read in machines at the stores or atms

and yes the only things I have put on that were my speeding ticket and this board, and I lied i just checked my statements its actually been 2 months since i used it and i did those two transactions within a week of each other.

and it can't be the computer cause I've got all my banking information on the computer and that was the only card affected.


and if it wasn't the boardshop transaction that means that toronto parking tickets does not have a secure website LOL.
