Looks like the PSN fiasco from April 2011 was just the beginning. There has been another massive breech with Global Payments Inc. which processes Visa and Mastercard payments.

According to XBIZ, "hackers had access to the processor's data from Jan. 21 through Feb. 25." MSNBC is reporting that up to 10 million accounts may be involved.

How to Tell If Your Credit Card Was Hacked in the Global Payments Breach

It makes me want to bang my head against the monitor. That or go back to the barter system... I will trade you a dozen eggs for that vibrator, two dozen if it's medical grade silicone.

Makes me glad I don't have a credit card. I pay cash, money order, or use my prepaid card for online purchases.

does not matter, if you have a SSN, they can mess with your life. Its pretty sad that we just cant go thought out our day and need to only worry about taking care of our families. Now we have to worry about someone getting ahold of our personal info and costing us lot of time and money.
