    I doubt I’m one of those people that got their card stolen. If I had been one, I’d have gotten a letter in the mail from my card holder specifically addressing it. That & my card would be deactivated but I just used it recently.

    Shame for those that did get theirs stolen.

          This is the Internet! *spartan kicks BOTH OF THEM off a cliff* FUCK YO PROPER SPELLING GRAMMAR!!!

  2. i actually received in the mail from GameStop about this which is odd because i would think they would email this kind of thing to users. i will constantly check my card account because i always transfer my money to a piggy bank within the same account which i thought was dumb at first but now i find it useful, it limits me and i can transfer any amount back for when shopping and buying things when im at work which is walmart.

    1. Sure live in the 1920’s due to fear. How bout shop through a second party (e.g. PayPal) of which blocks your primary information from being obtained.
