I just had to get a new Amazon Visa. Someone in TX tried to use my card to buy a WildTangent game for $9.99. It was rejected because they had the wrong expiration date and billing address. It sounded to me like somebody typo'ed their CC number, but they shut down my account anyway.
I buy everything on my Discover CC for the cash back bonus, and since a fair chunk of that is for my business it really adds up. But I can see a time in the future when it's just not worth it. Chip and pin helps with in person purchasing, but unless they come up with something to provide real security for online purchases it could get very expensive for the CC companies and very annoying for the customers.
