Nothing To Do About Stolen Credit Cards

from the seems-odd dept

A weird story about a group of people who buy online from the same exotic pet stores and discovered that their credit cards had been stolen. They reported this to various authorities who all basically said that the thefts were too small for them to bother with. What I don’t understand is why they didn’t go after the site that let their credit cards out? It seems as though they simply went to the credit card companies and law enforcement, who both had bigger fish to fry. However, they’re still shopping at these various online stores – and they don’t even know which one let their credit card data get stolen. So, now some of them are still shopping at the same online stores, but changing their credit card numbers every few months. That seems like a ridiculous solution.
