My credit card company has a "Virtual Credit Card Feature". It gives me a one time number that I can set restrictions on including how many times it can be used, who can use it, and maximum charge. It is actually probably safer to use a credit card on line with a known reputable merchant because your credit card will almost never be seen by a real person and is stored in a secured data base. In a store or restaurant at least one person always sees it and who knows what evil lurks in their mind. <G> Lim, Franciscus wrote: > >A couple of weeks ago, I signed up to eBay using my American Express. >After two days, I received a telephone call from American Express Customer >Service, told me that someone had been trying charge to my AMEX credit card. >And they believe it's carding.
