Michael, I read the FAQ about Identity Theft. This involves using a too big to fail bank, but I have confidence in Shop Safe that is a service linking a virtual credit card number to my actual card. I can set the amount, occurrence, expiry date and control from the drivers seat every online transaction of every purchase I make. The actual card number that backs the virtual transaction is never seen by the online merchant. This is
via Bank Of America. A Bank that I use with trepidation due to the attachment of
what I consider usury fees should you botch the due date of your payment. Otherwise, It is a service allowing fearless transactions online. I was not able to
add this info to your FAQ. Maybe you would like to....
