I recently made a credit card purchase at I am rather certain it happened here because I have not used this card in over 2 months. Shortly after making the purchase (one day) someone used my card at US Search to get my personal information and used it to buy a DELL laptop. Put this in the “I never thought this would happen to me” category. Dude, someone’s gettin’ a DELL. Thankfully the criminal was stupid enough to have it shipped to his home. Dude, someone’s going to jail.

Ed: This is getting increasingly common — I suggest watching for US Search charges, since I had exactly the same thing happen. Readers out there — any suggestion for heading off the telltale US Search itself? Anyone tried to get their cards blocked at this oft-abused site? -PK
