  1. Or it’s a way to harvest credit card numbers… My corporate firewall reports the site as “phishing”

  2. Judging from the Google search results (for ismycreditcardstolen.com), this site *might* be benevolent, and I see how Gerv might support their cause. That the site transmits the sensitive data over plain HTTP kind of defeats the purpose though…

    However like Gerv, I suggest you try this site.

    It’s perfectly safe (just check out the in the source)…

  4. I am confident that the probability of anyone stealing my credit card numbers is very low — much lower than average. I am confident about that partly because I majored in math and know how to crunch the numbers but mostly because I do not have, and have not ever had, a credit card.
