2 go to your bank, and get a Visa gift card in that exact amount.

3 use the gift card for your purchase

4 throw card away afterwards.

There is no more money on the card, so even if someone does get the info about the card np there is no money on it anyway.

Gift cards are only $3 dollars USA. A cheap price to pay to know you are safe.
This is what I do.

1. get credit card
2. watch credit card statement online
3. If anything happens call and get a new card no problem.

I used to bank with a very large Credit Union. My wallet was stolen and they racked up about $500 dollars before they froze the account.

They told me sorry but I was going to be responsible for the charges.

But ya I'm just an idiot with no real world experience I just sit in front of my computer and play racing games all day.

Its been said the the PSN was attacked by 6000 individual hackings at once. That would be like being attacked by an entire hive of killer bees. The Federal Government made a statement that not even their security could have withstood thats size of an attack. I am currently searching for the news reports that these statements were made in. Honestly, do you really think that Sony would make any statement say that the Credit Card Numbers were not secure and that they were taken? The would mean the death of the company. There have been reports of people credit cards having unknown charges after the hacking. There have also been "unconfirmed" reports of Credit Card info being sold in some databases. While these are scary to think about it is unclear whether these are actually happening. Keep a close eye on your credit card statements. If you are able to check them online daily through the secure website of your credit card company or banmk I recommend that you do so. Do not take this incedent lightly, but don't become over zealous either. Vigilance and caution but not fanaticism.

Dunno about the US, but if you are a victim of card/bank fraud in the UK, you're usually covered!

What credit union? You shouldn't be responsible for any fraudulent charges, period.

Oh and making jabs at what you think I do all day, you again clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

Well it was called Wood Products Credit Union... I think they changed their name though.

Does it matter? You are on my ignore list now anyway.

XBL has been hacked a few times actually. Here's a link to one of those times http://www.zdnet.com/blog/security/x...nts-stolen/131.

There was only proof that user data had been taken not CC data, not to mention this DB was encrypted and without a CVV number. In other words hackers cannot use this data without phishing you first.

The only thing you need to watch out for is phishing scams. Any causes of fraud are from phishing scams, coincedence or false.

Not to stick up for Sony but this is getting far too much bad publicity, there have been much bigger data breaches than this in the last decade that had confirmed CC data taken. (T.J Maxx and cardsystem solutions to name a few).

Free speech means the government can't legally stop you from making a statement, but it won't keep you from being sued for slander. FYI...
