This is why you shouldn't record information about stuff like this.

In situations like this, the less you know the better.

not necessarily, my parents billing and shippping are different, they have business cards though, so maybe that's why
and ive tried using one of those, for a validation, some stupid website wanted credit card validation for content, like a game website, sooo stupid...

Yes they were shown on BBC's "Breakfast" this morning the reporter was standing outside one, apparently they have quite a few stores in England
The parent company in America has been sued.

When you say generate codes do you mean it generates the long number plus cc and start date etc? the long number is based on the luhn formula which is not too hard to generate

I read a book about this. Credit Cards are easy to fake and get free things online with. All you do is generate a specific code for each credit type, i.e Visa, Mastercard, American Express etc etc. It's just an algorithm. Once you crack that you can make a fake credit card, put a set limit of how much you can spend on it, and boom, go shopping online. Online eTailers don't do the same security checks that stores do, they just check the code, verify it, process the order, and ship. This is why online fraud is so easy an abundant.

A spokesman for TJ Maxx said yesterday that he was "pretty sure" that purchases made in Britain won't be affected.
