Gas man's eBay spree with stolen card

No primary category set

Here’s a comforting thought for anyone worried about website security and phishing: your credit card number is a lot less safe out there in meat space. A New Jersey petrol station attendant apparently memorised a customer’s credit card number and used it to buy US$600 worth of merchandise off eBay. The police said that the accused man had admitted to ordering the items, but that he had not taken delivery of the goods, which he had had delivered to neighbours. The woman whose card was used is to be reimbursed via Paypal; there’s no word on whether the fraudulently purchased items will be returned to the sellers or not.
