Just got a call two weeks ago that my card was used in Eureka, CA, but I've never been to CA. Going to check my credit card bills when I get home, since I've been to the Tip Top and always charge it.

Hacking is considered a respectable industry in much of Russia. Much like how American newspapers will feature "HS football stars," Russian newspapers regularly feature "Teenage Hackers" who successfully bilked "stupid Americans" out of $40K or however much they stole. Here, they'd be thrown in jail. In Russia, they're considered talented town heroes.

I was a victim. This happened to me. Someone spent $1,000 of my money in California on groceries. Luckily, I was reimbursed by my bank today.

Several of my friends and I were victims. Someone spent $200 of my money at a store California. I got my money back after some complications with my bank, but I hate thinking that the people who stole my card number and the ones who bought it and spent my money will probably never be caught.

I, too, have recently realized that I was a victim of this ordeal. On December 3, my account was fraudulently charged 18 times. In looking back, I remembered that I had been a customer of Tip Top during the timeframe noted. Thank goodness for the fantastic customer service at my bank, which got everything back in order within a few short days.

See, what everyone needs to understand is that there are good hackers and asshole hackers. I'm sure I don't need to distinguish between the two.

Hacking is a great way to learn about security, from an engineer's point of view. Some people just use there talent to hurt people.

I guess my point is , Not all hackers are bad!

Yes! Some hackers will even take you out to a restaurant for a meal on "their" card....

(Cracker versus hacker have any bearing on your post?)
