    My grandma is skeptical about buying things on the internet too.

    I dont' know that I would call them morons, but there really is only so much that people can do to protect that information. You should be able to trust your information, but it's a constant battle and there is a certain risk you have to accept. No different than handing that credit card to a high school drop out at a convenience store. If he decides to write down your number to use at a later date, no amount of internet security is going to save it from being used somewhere else.
    Ok at least I know you're not serious now. Now we can be friends.

    I honestly don't know how much of a global issue it is, but his connectivity has been worse than mine over the 2+ years we have lived together.
    I think it's a fairly common issue with PS3's. Two of my roommates have them and I have an Xbox. I never have issues with my connection and trying to get and keep a good connection while playing COD online on PS3 is damn near impossible.

    I'm glad this debate, as always, has devolved to picking the ****** or the turd sandwich

    Well that can happen. It happened at a place in West Des Moines last year. My boss was a victim, he had charges from a Wal-Mart in Cedar Rapids after eating at this place.

    Your boss handed his CC to a high school drop out at a convenience store? And you still work for him?

    He handed his CC to a person at a place of business. He could of been a high school drop out, but that is kind of hard to tell.

    Or for the Sony fan boys that constantly chime in about free online, a lesson in getting what you pay for?

    I have both consoles so I have no dog in this fight.

    So he's an idiot for using his CC? Where are we going with this?

    You highlighted "No different than handing that credit card to a high school drop out at a convenience store" and said he couldn't be serious. That poster just used that analogy to say that people expect security when they hand over information like that, yet people are still scumbags and will steal/hack that information.

    Duh...

    Take your paycheck straight to the bank. Get cash, NEVER deposit. Take cash home & hide under the mattress in your bunker. Boom, your money is safe.

    In circumstances where you need to buy something online, take precise amount of cash necessary & lock in your fanny pack. Walk down to Wal-Mart & buy a gift card for said online entity. (Better make damn sure nobody sneaks a peak at the gift card number during this process, though.)

    But are you at fault if your information gets hacked just because you used your card like theantiAIRBHG suggests?

    I hope you all lock your credit cards in a personal safe at home, because your family and friends are more likely to steal it than criminals.

    Well Clonefan94 was the post you quoted, and all he mentioned was that there is a risk no matter who you give the information too. He was stating the exact opposite, that there is only so much 1 person can do to secure their information.
