On Feb. 23, 2008 I opened a store front on the ePier internet auction site and used my credit card number to do so as required by ePier. Within 24 hours on Feb. 24, 2008 fraudulent charges started appearing on my credit card account! I cancelled the site 3 days later but ePier still had the gall to post the charge! Need I say more?
Stolen cards used to buy gold
U.S. Postal Service inspectors are investigating the fraudulent use of stolen American Express credit cards to purchase apparently tens of thousands of dollars of gold coins. “The orders are placed by phone, often for $10,000 to $20,000 worth of Liberty double eagles or other, large-sized gold coins,” said Michael Fuljenz, president of Universal Coin & Bullion in Beaumont, Texas, who has been working with postal inspectors on several cases.
