This post is in response to Chatsey and the Richard Simmons nightmare. What you described happened to me to and I was wondering how many people across the US were getting fleeced. I ended up cancelling my credit card and switching credit card companies to get away from them. At any rate, I wanted to let you all know of a service offered by some credit card companies. I saw a news report that alot of credit card companies are issuing single use credit card numbers that are linked to your own credit card, but can only be used once. So if you choose to order something over the Internet or from an infomercial, your account is secure from unauthorized use or someone stealing and using your number. Some of the credit cards they mentioned were American Express, Citibank, and MBNA, but this reporter said alot of banks are starting. They said to log on to your credit cards website to get the numbers. I'm going to try it out as soon as I find something I want to buy, but thought I would pass yhis along.
